You’ve heard these, haven’t you? “There are only two things certain in life: death and taxes”; “Taxes are a necessary evil.” But have you heard “The power to tax is the power to destroy”? It’s true that much-too-high taxes, fees, and assessments, along with a choke-hold of bureaucratic regulations, are raising prices, hurting families, killing jobs, closing businesses, hurting our economy, and causing hard-working people to leave California. To protect your purse or wallet, I will oppose all new taxes, fees, and assessments, as well as burdensome regulations, and will seek to lower or repeal these wherever possible.
