It did not take long for Hannah-Beth Jackson, your representative for the 19th State Senate District, to get on board with a bill to raise your taxes. Here she is, promoting and supporting Assembly Constitutional Amendment (ACA) 8, a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow all local city and county tax increases to be approved by a simple majority of 55% instead of the two-thirds now required.
This bill was pushed through the Assembly by Jackson’s sidekick Das Williams, 37th District assemblyman, by a 54 to 25 vote. You may remember that Williams was Jackson’s assistant during her previous term in the State Assembly, when she thoroughly brainwashed him in her socialist agenda. Now he has pushed through the Assembly this heinous bill to open holes in the tax fabric so we all can be easily taxed and these taxes can be added to our property tax bills.
Everything is on the table. The county supervisors and city councils can hit us with all kinds of new taxes that can easily be put through by a simple 55% vote by you gullible taxpayers. You all fell for the last round of these propositions by voting for passage of the state budget on a 55% vote so here it is to do it again on all new taxes at the local level.
Now that ACA 8 has passed the Assembly, Ms. Jackson will be pushing it through the State Senate for a vote, which the Democratic majority will probably approve, and then on the governor to sign.
ACA 8 is an effort by the Democrats to circumvent Proposition 13, which is a Constitutional amendment. With the supermajority you voters gave them since the last election, the Democrats will seek out any avenue to get more taxes to pay their union supporters for their lavish life styles.
In the long run, senior citizens on fixed incomes will suffer with from the higher taxes that may result from ACA 8. Your homes may be at risk from Taxin’ Jackson’s efforts.
