Vote NO on May 19!
On May 19, the Governor and the Legislature are spending a lot of our money on a special election they claim will solve the states budget problems. The Peace and Freedom Party calls for a NO vote on the whole process. Vote NO on Propositions 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E and 1F.
These propositions are part of a rotten deal made in Sacramento to raise taxes on the poor, cut taxes on corporations, and slash social programs. The Governor and the Legislature stole from the blind and disabled to feed the movie industry. They raised the sales tax on working people while giving huge breaks to multi-state corporations. They lowered the tax credit for children to take $1.4 billion a year from working families.
The politicians now come to us and ask us to ratify their deal and lock parts of it into the State Constitution.
Just say "NO".
