SEIU has been asking people to make phone calls to sway the vote on propositions. Many of these propositions are about raising more tax money. So we are supposed to believe that, somehow, the government doesn’t have enough money for what matters to us, so we are told to help them collect more–usually off our own backs.

When the state gets more money, the politicians who run the state always find a way to route it to the coffers of large corporations. No, we aren’t going to tax ourselves into a better situation.
