"California's tax rates brutalize the middle class:"

Individuals making between $37,005 and $46,766 pay an 8 percent state income tax.
Only six states and the District of Columbia have a maximum tax rate higher than 8 percent, but that is the burden on someone making only $40,000 in California -- a place where $40,000 doesn't go very far towards ordinary costs of living. And from $46,766 to $1,000,000 of income, the California state tax rate is 9.3 percent. -- The American Spectator : Our Very Own Greece

Your Say

You're an idiot for living there and owning a business. Working for a company doesn't make you less dumb. Let the Pinko Corps. die on the Poison Ivy Vine

My sentiments exactly.

Just one more reason (among many) to not live in California. The good, hardworking folks who live there, in places like San Diego and the Central Valley, seem powerless to overcome the tax-and-spend idiocy that the LA-SF-SJ leftists who call the shots have inflicted on what used to be a beautiful State. From Promised Land to over-regulated, over-taxed dystopia in, what, 1 or 2 generations? Doesn't take very long when the state squeezes the economic life out of its most productive inhabitants.
