On California voters approving a new tax on themselves…
In Prop 30, citizens of California voted to raise taxes on themselves. And so Mayor Willie Brown, Speaker Brown, "Oh, this will work, this will work 'cause the people are behind it. They voted this themselves." Okay, so we got that. Number two. He said, "Yeah, the lottery, 25, 30 years ago, supposed to pay for all education." As far as most Californians are concerned, there's nothing wrong with it. The schools are still open. Unfunded liabilities, pension liabilities? They may be unfunded, but people retire, they're still getting their pensions. We haven't gone over the cliff on anything. None of that explanation's gonna convince anybody that there's a problem. That's my point.
