UPDATE ON CALIFORNIA NEW GAS TAX…….

Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez

Responds to Governor Brown’s

May Budget Revision

5-24-2017


COPIED FROM HER WEB PAGE:

Assemblywoman Melissa A. Melendez (R-Lake Elsinore) released the following statement today in response to Governor Brown’s May Revision of his 2017-18 budget proposal:
“This budget is a perfect Democrat con job.  After forcing a multi-billion dollar, potentially illegal, tax increase on all Californians, with the promise of better roads, Governor Brown and his fellow Democrats are already diverting funding to their own pet projects.  In this budget proposal, they are diverting 30 percent of funding from the gas tax to non-road related projects like building parks and job training for felons. That’s money from the very gas tax the Democrats promised would go solely to fixing our decrepit roads and providing relief for traffic congestion. I hope all Californians will take action and start demanding accountability with their tax dollars from the Democrats who run this state.”

Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez represents the 67th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Lake Elsinore, Canyon Lake, Murrieta, Menifee, Wildomar and a portion of Hemet. It also includes the Riverside County unincorporated areas of Lake Mathews, Good Hope, Nuevo, and Winchester.

WAZZUP DAWG: THAT CALIFORNIA UNIVERSAL INSURANCE PLAN? THE PRICE TAG IS IN……

$400 BILLION TO REMAKE CALIFORNIA’S MARKETPLACE

by Marty Carlson

5-23-2017


According to the Sacramento Bee and multiple other media outlets, the price tag for California proposed health insurance marketplace to create a publicly funded universal healthcare system was analyzed by a state financial analyst and the results were released Monday.

An additional $200 billion a year would have to be added to California’s budget, which would require new tax revenues to create a so-called single payer system. The analysis assumes the state would retain the existing $200 billion in local, state, and federal funding currently funk received to offset the total $400 billion price tag.

The cost analysis is seen as the biggest hurdle to creating a universal system, this system was proposed by Senators Ricardo Lara, D – Bell Gardens, and Tony Atkins, D – San Diego.

It obviously remains a longshot bid. Projected costs have derailed the efforts for over the last two decades in attempts to establish such a system in California.

Currently, $100 billion-$150 billion per year is being spent currently by employers. Which are numbers which could be available to help offset total cost, according to the analysis so new spending to implement the system would be between $50 billion and $100 billion per year.

Sen. Lara stated Monday at an appropriation hearing that “healthcare spending is growing faster than the overall economy…. Yet we do not have better health outcomes and we cover fewer people,” he went on to say is critical that California charts their own path.

The idea behind SB-562 is to overhaul California’s insurance marketplace’s, reduce overall healthcare costs and expand coverage to everyone in the state regardless of immigration status or ability to pay. Instead of private insurers, state government would be to single-payer for everyone’s health care throughout a new payroll taxing structure, similar to the way Medicare operates.


Dawg says:

Put aside the immigration issue for just a minute, and look at the tax burden alone that would be placed on what is the remaining workers in California. This states leaders have an opinion there is an unending supply of money through taxation, as a constantly increase the burden upon the working class, which includes the low-income class. In addition, past history has shown California has not been able to act responsibly with major influxes of cash through taxation, the most recent being the new road tax, these assessments, cash flow for the California where they have not acted responsibly or used those tax dollars for what was intended. The previous billions of dollars paid for the roads in taxes at the pump, car registrations, not to even mention the massive amount of money paid for out of state trucking pays to use the roads.

Now you throw in an added factor of illegal aliens being provide coverage how do you sustain that type of expense in today’s working environment in California, which is becoming very quickly a benefit and welfare state.

Also keep in mind we are not talking about health care with this issue, we are talking about health care insurance, which I think is a notable difference. Until we have a healthcare system that is patient orientated and not profit orientated there will be no good solution to any of this. Obama care was not a good solution, but I do think it was a start in the right direction but poorly implemented, and the so-called Trump care is not much different.


MORE DO AS WE SAY NOT AS WE DO…….

DNC FACING LAWSUITS FOR NON-LIVING WAGE TO EMPLOYEES

by Marty Carlson

5-20-2016


Multiple media outlets have reported dozens of Democratic National Committee field workers have filed a class-action lawsuit against the Democratic party for failing to pay overtime and to not pay minimum wage to its own employees. The DNC mantra has been to push employers to pay $15 an hour minimum wage but apparently don’t feel that same passion with their own employees when they have to foot the bill.

An attorney representing the DNC fieldworkers, argued the Democratic Party failed to pay workers a minimum wage and denied them over time compensation. The lawsuit seeks fair pay for fair work, he also stated “they need to hold the Democratic Party to the very ideals that it embraces.”

The Democratic platform in 2016 push for the $15 an hour minimum wage, nearly double of the current minimum, and promised to defend an Obama – era regulation forcing employers to pay a higher rate to employees for working more than 40 hours.

According to the attorney, DNC workers put in 80 to 90 hours per week and got only $3000 a month in compensation. “They got paid a flat salary of $3000 a month which is not even minimum wage for some of the hours that they were working”

Recent studies show most members of Congress who have supported the legislation to boost minimum wage don’t even pay their interns. But there mantra has constantly been “they deserve a living wage.”

Of the 205 House and Senate sponsors of the raise the wage act, which would increase the federal minimum wage to $12 per hour by 2020 only a dozen pay their interns while the rest – 94% – do not, says the Employment Policies Institute.

The Institute supports unpaid internships to give young people valuable work experience. But the group’s research director stated it is “hypocritical” for lawmakers to seek to raise the minimum wage and claim everybody deserves a living wage, and not pay their own interns.

My personal opinion is that there does need to be an upgrade in the minimum wage that have been too long without a decent increase. But this Could also put many employers out of business and be a loss of jobs. So it all needs to be considered.

But my biggest issue is if the leaders of this country want to pass legislation for these types of things they need to also set the example in their own office. It is pure hypocrisy if that’s not done.

I constantly see government passing legislation that affects the citizens of this country that they also turn around and exempt themselves from that same legislation apparently telling us they don’t have to live by the same rules or possibly that they’re just simply better than us. It’s happening massively in Sacramento right now. And it can only be done because we let it be done and we don’t do anything about.


INMATE DIES: NOT DISCOVERED FOR DAYS…….

INMATE DEAD TWO OR THREE DAYS BEFORE DISCOVERED

Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility

In inmate out of Los Angeles County, who had been sentenced to 16 years for assault with a deadly weapon was discovered dead in his cell and apparently had been deceased for at least two days.

James Acuna, 58, had been pronounced dead at 11:43 AM last Monday at Richard J. Donovan correctional facility, according to the press secretary for the California Department of Corrections and rehabilitation.

The Department of Corrections will make no further comment at this time as the death and circumstances surrounding it are pending results of an autopsy report.

According to multiple news reports from the area, Acuna may have been dead for two or three days before his body was discovered.

Donovan, the only state prison in San Diego County, houses approximately 3,700 male inmates in the facility is less than 2 miles from the United States – Mexico border. The facility is designed a house 2992 inmates, though it has a current occupancy rate of 124%.

No further information regarding the situation is available at this time.

I am no bleeding heart when it comes to criminals on the other hand if somebody’s laying there for two days after they’ve deceased, there’s a serious problem there.

Somebody didn’t do their damn job.

THE WHORE TRAIN IS NOW OFFICIAL…….

$1 BILLION IN SIDE DEALS FOR GAS TAX IS APPROVED

by Marty Carlson

April 25, 2017


Several media reports have reported that the nearly $1 billion in controversy all side deals that were made to complete the gas tax embezzlement of the taxpayers of California have been approved by the legislature.


Anthony Canella

Prior to the April 6 vote for the tax, funding for a handful of transportation projects had surfaced in a separate bill, See SB 132 .The projects will benefit the districts represented by Adam Gray, Democrat Merced; Sen. Anthony Cannella, Republican series; assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes, Democrat Corona; and Sen. Richard Roth, Democrat Riverside.

All for those lawmakers voted in favor of the gas tax that was passed without a vote spare.

Interesting enough part of that deal passed Monday, was Senate Bill 496, by Anthony Cannella that would protect architects, engineers and other design professionals against legal claims made by public agencies. Cannella is an engineer.

It is asserted the gas tax will generate more than $5 billion per year for road repairs and local transit projects by indefinitely increasing gas tax and diesel taxes and hiking vehicle registration fees. The state claims it will cost the average driver roughly $10 per month or less. It’s

I guess that is the price of a cheap whore these days.

It appears that Gov. Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, has delayed signing the transportation bill that’s been on his desk, and that he championed with his whorish behavior because he was waiting for the “side deals,” which he called “arrangements”

sadly it appears this type of behavior is becoming the normal and not the exception with lawmakers anymore. The true characters of many of these people come out once they realize they are beginning to turn out or not get or run for reelection and do not need to pander for votes.
