Gov. Brown Calls Law-Abiding California Taxpayers 'Freeloaders'

oped: Yes indeed Gov Jerry Brown the proverbial TaxMan of Biblical proportions :


In the spirit of Harrison’s song, I’m posting the following from an anonymous author. Enjoy it and remember in November. 

Tax his land, tax his bed,
Tax the table at which he’s fed.
Tax his tractor, tax his mule,
Teach him taxes are the rule.
Tax his cow, tax his goat,
Tax his pants, tax his coat.
Tax his ties, tax his shirt,
Tax his work, tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco, tax his drink.
Tax him if he tries to think.
Tax his cigars, tax his beers,
If he cries, then tax his tears
Tax his car, tax his gas,
Find other ways to tax his ass.
Tax all he has, then let him know That you won’t be done ’til he has no dough. 
When he screams and hollers,
Tax him some more.

Tax his air 
Tax his water
Tax his/her sex
Tax him ’till he’s good and sore.
Then tax his coffin, tax his grave.
Tax the sod in which he’s laid.
Put these words upon his tomb,
“Taxes drove me to my doom.”
When he’s gone, do not relax.
It’s time to apply the inheritance tax

In response to criticism over a new $52 billion tax hike for the already heavily-taxed state, Gov. Jerry Brown (D-Calif.) called upset taxpayers “freeloaders.”
“The freeloaders — I’ve had enough of them,” Brown said at an event in Orange Country last week.
Yes, law-abiding Californians who work and pay taxes are “freeloaders” according to his liberal logic, just because they don’t support getting taxed even more than they already are.
Never mind that people living in California are struggling already with the outrageously high and unregulated rent prices, high gas costs, and high taxes for simply residing in The Golden State.
Gov. Brown attempted to justify his remark by saying that the tax legislation put forward by state Democrats – which would include a 12 cent increase in the gas tax and an increase of $50 for annual vehicle registration fees – adjusts for inflation and is required in order to repair the state's roads.
“Roads require money to fix,” said Brown. “Republicans say there’s a magic source of money — it doesn’t exist."

"You want to borrow money and pay double? Or do nothing? Or take money from universities?” he asked.
No, of course not. But maybe let's try to allocate state funds more efficiently instead of asking taxpayers to fork out more of the income they need to make a living?
