California's Proposition 38 seeks to boost funding for the states schools through a regressive, across-the-board income tax increase on all California taxpayers, even those earning as little as $7,500 per year. This measure is on the ballot as a Trojan horse against Governor Brown's Prop. 30, which also seeks to increase funding for schools, only in Prop. 30's case it's by increasing the statewide sales tax and income taxes only on those making more than $250,000 per year.
In addition, should Prop. 38 trump 30, the state would face disastrous automatic spending cuts of more than $6.5-billion, which would devastate school systems from K-12 through community colleges and up to the Cal-State and UC universities.
Vote NO on Proposition 38.
