With the highest sales tax rate and 4th highest income tax rate in the nation, it's no wonder that California companies and families are leaving.
We have to face reality, in these tough economic times, family run businesses are struggling to make a profit and parents are weighing the cost of tonight's dinner and a new sweater.
California is taxing its citizens out of prosperity and into poverty. For our future, we have to stand up and fight. At every turn the government asks us to just give a little more. Enough is enough!
* I stood strongly against liberal legislators that imposed increases to sale and personal income taxes.
* I'm fighting to eliminate taxes on manufacturing equipment so we can be nationally competitive in bringing manufacturing jobs to California.
* I've fought for efforts to reduces taxes for every taxpayer and business in order to jumpstart our economy.
* It's about time we restore California as a leader in economic growth, competitiveness, and innovation.
