Californians shoulder the highest personal income tax burden in the country. And yet our state teeters on the brink of financial collapse. The liberal tax and spend crowd in Sacramento needs to understand that no society has ever taxed its way to prosperity. Trying to achieve solvency on the backs of productive citizens is morally wrong -- and it will not work.
California's irresponsible tax policies need to be scrapped. I will promote tax cuts because our fiscal problems are on the spending side, not the revenue side. Tax cuts revive failing economies, increase revenues, and reward savings and investment. And tax cuts are right for families, farms, and businesses. You know better than Sacramento how to spend your own money. As your State Senator, I'll work to reduce your tax burden and help you keep more of your hard-earned money instead of sending it to Sacramento.
