Against Prop. 56

I’m sure by now many of you have seen the advertisement for a yes vote on Prop. 56. Things like stopping paychecks to legislatures if they do not vote a budget on time sounds all well and good. Please remember, Prop. 56 also lowers the voting percentage to pass on new taxes. Currently it takes a two-thirds vote to pass a tax. If Prop. 56 passes, it will only require a 55 percent majority. By voting yes on Prop. 56, we will just make it easier for the government to raise our taxes.
