Even higher taxes coming for Californians
Lower brackets and reduced deductions mean yet higher payments to Sacramento for 2009.

Reporting from Sacramento - While Californians are still feeling the sting of income and sales tax hikes signed into law earlier this year, now comes news that state tax authorities plan to take a little more from their pockets.
For only the second time in 30 years, the tax board is lowering the point where each tax bracket begins, bumping many people into a higher category. At the same time, officials are cutting back some deductions. Everyone will pay more, even people whose bracket or income doesn't change.
Highest taxes in the nation already, and these morons still feel it isn't enough already. Jesus.
But wait, you racists, you haven't funded this diamond rings for crackwhores program fully. The $200K a year bureaucrats in charge of this necessary government safety net are specialer than you or your children or your mortgage, so we'd like to rape your personal income budget just a wee bit more.
And these are the sort of politicians and administrators that Obamacare supporters think could effectively and responsibly run a national socialized health care system?
