Kalifornien: Das hat man nun von den unheiligen Steuersenkungen

Schwarznegger, however, is the first governor in modern times to actually make it even worse than usual. He won his first (recall) election against the former governor, Gray Davis, by calling for a repeal of the car tax. That was the most progressive tax in California: the rich paid more for expensive and more valuable cars, the poor less. That repeal cost the state $4 billion a year. Do the math: Schwarznegger’s term in office x $4 billion roughly equals $26 plus billion deficit
