Many Calif. Small Businesses Wary of Brown's Prop 30

Also, just to put things into perspective, here are some relevant charts on California's current income taxes and sales taxes and how Proposition 30 will increase them.

I'm a small business owner. I don't make enough to worry about the income portion of the Proposition 30 tax hikes. However, I can see that Proposition 30 is just bad public policy and even worse tax policy. The income tax portion is an abuse of the democratic initiative process! I will VOTE NO ON PROPOSITION 30. Here are my reasons.

You don't get an economic mess like ours overnight. It takes years of neglect and mismanagement. Despite near supermajorities in BOTH Houses of the Legislature and owning EVERY major state-wide office, Governor Brown and the Democrats have enacted little real reform. Spending continues essentially unabated. Proposition 30 tax hikes are no reform either. WE NEED REAL REFORM, not higher taxes.
