    At the current debt levels, you need to raise taxes and cut back services. At least they got it half right. Now if they would just show some guts and do the other half already, CA might be saved from financial doom.

    Is it your claim that raising taxes will necessarily result in raising revenues?

    Are you blind?

    It is my claim that cutting services and raising taxes is the only way to deal with the impending economic crisis, not only in CA, but your entire country.

    It's the one thing that politicians are afraid to do because it will mean instant death to their career; but if most politicians could get behind it, it wouldn't be such political suicide. Your country must take that route to survive.

    I know a business buddy who is seriously contemplating three SWestern states to relocate his business. That's another 150 or so jobs down the crapper for SoCal if he departs.

    It used to be a business friendly state, now it is business hostile and up to its eyeballs in debt.

    Half correct.

    You need to cut taxes and regulation to spur growth, jobs and tax revenue, otherwise that money will flow to business friendly regions... or it will sit untouched in safe havens.

    JFK (R-MA) knew this:

    "It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now ...

    Cutting taxes now is not to incur a budget deficit, but to achieve the more prosperous, expanding economy which can bring a budget surplus."

    John F. Kennedy
    Nov. 20, 1962, president's news conference
    Also supported by the following where the reporter schools Obama, and Obama does what he often does... dismisses the facts with a wave of the hand.

    YOU ONLY HAVE TO WATCH THE FIRST 30 secs.
