What has happened to all the money generated by the Housing bubble? I would like to see a graph showing the increase in property taxes sent to the State from all the homes changing hands over the last 10 years. Prop 13 has helped the bloat in State coffers that allows the state to waste money. We need to manage the money that the state generates at this moment in time, not create every possible department that overlap every other department in the State because they have the money to do it. I have family that works for the state and they inform me that it is a mess. What we need to do is confront these cushy retirement benefits that have been lobbied by a system that rewards the connected and get our state back in line with private residents. Our government spends a large portion of its moneys on retirement of its employees instead of on schools, fire and life safety. Why are we not confronting this issue first. Please, the last thing we need to do is throw more tax money @ a broke system.
