Governor Brown signed AB 102 today which kills off the State Board of Equalization on July first. (Yes three short days from now.) Virtually all power and staff assigned to BOE are now under the direct control of the governor and not members elected by the voters of California. The new agency—California Department of Tax and Fee Administration—has spring fully formed from its parent’s corpse.
Sadly, tyranny marches on and I have yet to find anyone that even cares.
Mark Twain is often credited for popularizing the statement, “there are lies, damn lie, and statistics.”
Here’s an example from today’s news.
Sen. Feinstein: 4 Million Californians Would Lose Health Care Under Senate Republicans’ Bill
California’s senior senator said Tuesday that 1.6 million Californians would lose coverage next year.
Per Cover California’s March 2017 enrollment numbers, they insure 1,386,280 people.
Thus more people would lose coverage than are even on the program!!
This includes both legal and illegal residents of the State. And furthermore, “Obamacare” (which is actually “Arnoldcare”) is the law for California whether it is nationally or not. The real issue is how much will the national government subsidize California’s utopian dreams?
