"We are a government of the People and for the People instead of by and for the Politicians."
- Howard Jarvis, 1977
Proposition 1A is a blatant attempt to raise all
Californians' taxes to support the continual overspending by Sacramento
Sacramento Politicians Wage War Against California Taxpayers!
Sacramento politicians just raised taxes on all Californians while 1
in 10 is unemployed, foreclosures are at record levels, and people and
jobs are leaving the state.
These new taxes will cost the average California family over $1,100 per year.
That's right, higher sales taxes, higher income taxes and a higher
car tax. If you have children, you have lost much of your tax credit
Now is the time to fight back! It is time to show Sacramento that
"WE THE PEOPLE" are the government. The people we elect are not the
bosses, we are!
The Governor and two-thirds of the Legislature have voted to make
California taxpayers the highest taxed people in the country for the
next two years.
To make matters worse, these same political elitists
have placed Proposition 1A on the May 19 special election ballot, which
would DOUBLE the damage to taxpayers if passed.
Here is what is important about Proposition 1A: Masked behind a
phony spending limit is an extension of the massive tax increase just
approved. Proposition 1A means an additional two years, for a total of
4 years of record high taxes. That's another $16 billion of your money!
Prop. 1A will raise taxes on all Californians and extend them for an
additional two years, taking another $16 billion from you! The already
approved tax increase will cost a typical California family $1,100
HIGHER SALES TAX!
Prop. 1A will extend the sales tax hike for
another two years. California taxpayers already pay the highest sales
tax in the nation - this is a direct attack on all working families,
especially low-income residents.
HIGHER CAR TAX!
Prop. 1A will extend the DOUBLING of the car tax. This affects every California car owner.
HIGHER STATE INCOME TAX!
Prop. 1A will extend an income tax increase
for two extra years. Californians already pay the highest income tax
rates in the nation. And now they will collect more from you.
REDUCTION OF TAX CREDIT FOR DEPENDENTS!
Californians with children
will see a reduction in the tax credits for dependents, costing
families $200 per child. Prop. 1A will extend this attack on families
for an extra two years.
The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association is urging a vote of "NO" on Proposition 1A
, which DOUBLES the tax increase!
DECEPTION, FAKE, FRAUD AND A $16 BILLION TAX INCREASE.
DON'T BE DECEIVED by statements that this is a "SPENDING LIMIT"
Those Sacramento politicians, who made a backroom "deal" to
resolve the budget process with a tax increase that will cost the
typical California family over $1,100, are offering another deal they
hope will fool voters.
What they are offering is a package of measures on the May 19
Special Election ballot that will confirm their tax increase budget.
However, the lynchpin of their plans is Proposition 1A.
1A is being
promoted as a spending limit that will compel those under the Capitol
dome to behave responsibly. This spending limit is a limit in name only
because it will automatically go up as taxes are increased by the
