  •  It's all about the money (0+ / 0-)

    Spoke to a colleague of mine who is very well paid and a Democrat but said she would NEVER vote for Angelides because he would raise her taxes.  Ok, maybe we can afford to lose her vote because most people don't make alot of money, but those who do, vote, so the sad truth of the matter is even if it is your belief that we need to raise taxes on upper income Californians (as it is mine even if it might cost me . . .), I am not sure I would make it the major plank in my platform and instead deal with it after the election . . .

      Imagine if Angelides did something really bold on taxes though, like a sharp cut for people below the poverty level (say...zero?) in tandem with raising taxes for the rich.  For that matter, imagine if just about anyone did that.  But I'm just dreaming.
