Your program about Prop. 13 sounds like a campaign ad for the repeal of the measure. Yes the state is having financial trouble and that is because of the massive entitlements granted to state workers and teachers thanks to the unions and the Democrats in the state legislature.
Before Prop 13 I used to cover the board of supervisors of a norhtern California county. Every year they balanced their budget by indreasing the property tax rate. Why be fiscally responsible when you can just increase the taxes.
A balanced report would have been nice. The couple with the million dollar home in Del Mar would not be in that home today with out Prop. 13.
