Take a second and watch recall leader Carl DeMaio explain how recalling Josh Newman is the first step in a three stage plan to rescind the new car tax and fix California’s roads without new taxes.
To sum up his plan:
- Recall Newman and eliminate the 2/3rds Democratic majority in the state senate.
- Give legislature 30 days to rescind gas tax before additional recalls commence.
- Pass statewide initiative to commit existing tax dollars towards road repairs.
Now that’s pretty ambitious. But remember that this tax is just the first test case for the Democrats, who are working on other tax hikes as we speak. They’re now desperate to fill in the enormous financial gap left by the public pension crisis. Even just the elimination of Newman has the potential to stop the state from reaching back into our pockets over and over again.
