DESPITE President Trump, California sees record Collections Windfall

Fixed thread title for you. What a total crock of bs trying to give credit to Trump for California's success. Completely false.

This has ZERO to do with Trump, or any California Republicans. Credit goes to the Jerry Brown admin, and California Democrats. California Republicans are against it, according to the article you posted.

How did you even come up with this? Did you even read the Christian Science Monitor article you posted? I read it, and it makes clear that this is all California Democrats' doing.

Gimme a frekin break. Most ridiculous thread yet, even for the Whipping Post.

Can't pin that on Brown. California has always been a tax hellhole, It is an expensive state. Repub or Dem - my grandparents fled to Washington after decades in California to get away from then Gov Ronald Raygun's tax hikes.

The biggest tax hike in US history, not only for California but holding the record for the nation as a whole, was by California Republican governor Reagan, with Republican governor Wilson holding second place.

The Largest State Tax Increase in History?

Taxes · March 29, 2011 · By California Budget and Policy Center

According to Bruce Bartlett, who worked as a senior policy analyst in the Reagan White House, the award for the largest state tax increase proposed by a governor in U.S. history goes to his former boss. As we honor the centennial anniversary of the birth of former California Governor and President Ronald Reagan, it is only fitting to give credit where credit is due. Governor Reagan’s 1967 tax plan – equal to nearly a third of 1967-68 General Fund spending – stands as the largest state tax increase not only here in California, but for the nation as a whole. The Reagan plan, according to Bartlett, raised the top income tax rate from 7 percent to 10 percent, the sales tax rate from 3 percent to 5 percent, the cigarette tax rate from 3 cents to 10 cents per pack, the alcohol tax from $1.50 to $2 per gallon, the bank and corporate tax rate from 5.5 percent to 7 percent, and the inheritance tax rate from a range of 2 percent to 10 percent to a range of 3 percent to 15 percent.

More importantly, the Reagan tax increase set the stage for a period of strong economic growth and provided the resources needed to support good schools, an expanding university system, and a strong safety net. And for that, our former Governor and President should be remembered. The second largest increase in California history? Measured as a share of state spending, the silver medal goes to the 1991 increase signed by Governor Pete Wilson (also a Republican, btw - BrerRabbit) in a budget agreement that bears similarity to the spending plan pending before the Legislature today: roughly equal levels of spending reductions and revenue increases coupled with a significant shift, or “realignment,” of program responsibility from the state to local governments.

Brown pulled California out of a 27 billion dollar deficit, [by taxing the wealthy], would you rather give the wealthy huge tax breaks at the expense of everyone else?. tell us how their wealth will trickle down!.

He’s a clown for having a different opinion than you do? Is this where we insert the Buckley quote?

California raises taxes and their economy soars.

Kansas lowers taxes and their economy sinks.

Trump has nothing to do with either.

Any questions?
