    If the Dems aren't careful, they will cede CA to the GOP this fall, in large part due to higher taxes/rates.

    What kind of pol thinks that they can increase electricity rates by 10% in a city with rates among the highest in the US?

    Villaraigosa, mayor of LA.

    And don't let me get started about sales and other regressive taxes and user fees.

    Glance at the polls.  The GOP is competitive in both the Senate and Governor races.

    And if the Dems don't look out for the middle-class, they will lose the state.

      ...some of the lowest electricity rates in California and, even after rate increases generated by the fact that LADWP is gradually weaning itself off coal power, what we pay will be more than 13% less than what customers of the private Southern California Edison, Pacific Gas & Electric and San Diego Gas & Electric pay.

      I'm not the city's biggest fan of Villaraigosa, but your complaint here is waaaaay off-base.

      I refuse to accept "no can do" as a proper slogan for progressives.
