California is proof that higher taxes equals less jobs in the private sector. When taxes are raised more expensive Government jobs are created for tax payers to have to pay for. The answer is not higher taxes, the answer is smaller government. Our Federal Government is following the California model and we are heading for disaster if we don't stop this Progressive Agenda. The only solution is Limited Government! Get out of the way and let businesses create and innovate. Return to the Reagan Ideology. Ronald W. Reagan "Government is not the Solution to the problem, Government is the Problem!"
