In my first term, we helped lead the fight to cut the Gray Davis' car tax, saving California's working families almost $4 billion. Now it is critical to fight back repeated efforts to raise the car tax and now our state's sales tax to fill the voids creating by passing unrealistic budgets year after year. In 2008, I stood to again oppose the State Budget that experts rightfully predicted was relying upon unrealistic revenue assumptions and would not make it through the year.

I oppose the unrestrained growth of government on the backs of the homeowner and taxpayer. It is essential that we defend the Proposition 13 and I will continue to do so. I'm proud to have earned consistent A+ ratings from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers' Association during my six years in the legislature and now have earned their endorsement in this campaign for State Senate.

We still need a conservative spending cap, keeping government off your back and out of your wallet, but it cannot come at the expense of raising taxes in the interim!

Ask another taxfighter who knows me well:

" Doug LaMalfa is a pro-taxpayer conservative who has a proven record of opposing tax increases and for fighting the liberal big spenders in Sacramento."

- Jon Coupal, President of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association
