Californians Vote for Fiscal Responsibility

Californians rejected a series of ballot measures yesterday that would have significantly raised their taxes so that the state could address its severe budget deficit without any major cuts in spending.  According to the liberal SFGate, the state will now be forced to “consider deeper cuts to education, public safety and health and human services.”  The one measure that Californians did vote in was a cap on salaries for the Governor and Legislators when a deficit exists.

The fact that even in the liberal state of California, voters are rejecting the idea of massive tax increases.  Every time this country lurches left, there eventually comes a tipping point where the people revolt, because liberalism is unsustainable.  The people of California are already heavily taxed, and they feel that the increased burden is not worth it when the government of California has made only the most token spending cuts.

This bodes well for Conservatism, especially for the tea party movement and the idea of fiscal responsibility.  Many states with left-leaning governments are hiking taxes without cutting spending, and their constituencies are starting to revolt.  It is happening in New York, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and even Massachusetts.  The liberal tax hikes are coming, and the American People do not like it one bit.  When Obama’s inevitable tax hikes are enacted to finance Health Care and his budget deficit, the pushback from the American people will make the Tea Parties look like tiny gatherings.
