That is, “Enough with the taxes, already.” A shrug from voters to struggling L.A. schools, and have a nice summer, kids.
The LA Times is heartbroken that given a choice, taxpayers who already feel overburdened don’t want to pay more in taxes. Isn’t it the Democratic Way to collect more taxes? Not that any problems are ever solved…
A new levy of some kind has failed. Measure EE it was called. Here are some of the comments the reporter has heard.
The district administration is inept, they carped. The union is corrupt and teacher benefits are bloated. Taxes are already too high. Parents are derelict. More money wouldn’t make a difference. Illegal immigration is bankrupting the district.
The last one is telling. Can it really be that in the Liberal Bastion, of LA in the heart of The People’s Republic of California, that voters are finally seeing the impact of illegal immigration? (I’m sure the LA Times will be labeling all of them Racist Trump-supporters in the next day or two.)
