Supervisor Kathy Long again shows her disrespect towards her constituents by objecting to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s support for Proposition 76. Long has shown over and over again that she has little or no concern for the taxpayer’s hard-earned money and where it goes!
Gov. Schwarzenegger made the promise of cutting the fat from the bloated bureaucracies nestled within the enormous catacombs of the California political machines.
Every year, the state and county governments reap more and more tax monies because the working class makes higher wages, and the county tax collector gets more property taxes because the property values are exploding and the economy is expanding. State and county employees, with hardly any exception, want higher remuneration for doing the same work. They scream COLA — cost of living adjustment. What is COLA? COLA stands in my mind for cost of labor adjustment, the dog that chases its own tail.
Now Long wants to withdraw Ventura’s support for Proposition 76. Long is wrong! All wages are steadily increasing, and this proposition is a good start to block the runaway inflation!
