It’s a gloomy day in California. The sky is gray. There’s a chill in the air. And I’m not just being metaphorical.
While other states are seeing an increase in tax revenues, California’s tax revenues were 20% ($2.4 billion) below target and the deficit is up to $16 billion, (versus the projected $9.2 billion deficit). Governor Moonbeam has admitted they’ll have to cut more expenditure, but for the sake of the children, he wants to raise the sales tax, which is already among the highest in the land. Oh, and tax the rich some more.
I grew up here and the weather is awesome. But the idea of moving to Florida is appealing more and more.
