The California Tax Foundation released its Tax and Fee Report this morning, and it’s a doozy.
In just three months, Capitol Democrats have introduced a staggering $6.2 billion in new taxes.
From a regressive tax on drinking water to attacks on Prop. 13’s taxpayer protections, ordinary Californians will pay the price if Democrats get their way.
“The families we serve need to live within their budgets. Assembly Republicans believe it’s time for state government do the same,” said Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron. “As the affordability crisis continues to worsen, big tax increases would pour fuel on the fire. We need to stand up for the middle-class Californians who are getting driven out of state by constantly rising costs.”
And by the way…these new taxes would be on top of the record $21.4 billion surplus the state currently enjoys.
