In the Nov. 6 election, LA voted to tax its “rich” friends and neighbors to pay for all the city’s overspending and wasteful ways:
Well that was just the rich. This is you:
The Los Angeles City Council agreed to place a half-cent sales tax hike on the March 5 ballot to avert new cuts in city services, drawing immediate opposition from critics in and outside city government.
Voters would decide the measure, which will boost collections by an estimated $215 million a year, on the same day they choose a new mayor. And there were signs the proposal already is influencing the race, which is expected to focus heavily on resolving the city’s chronic budget crisis.
Go ahead and vote for it. You know you want to. After all, you voted for “fairness” when it was someone else’s money. Be fair. Vote to give them yours, too.
