The people of California are among the most highly taxed in the country with people paying one third of their income to the federal government and another one third to the state. Now the Democrat controlled legislature has passed the largest single tax increase in the state’s history increasing the tax on gasoline by 12 cents per gallon. When angry taxpayers started recall petitions against some of the legislators who voted for the tax, liberal Democrat Governor Jerry Brown referred to them as “freeloaders”. He made these comments just shortly after demanding that millions of dollars of taxpayer money be given to provide free legal defense of illegal aliens in the state.
