Call these legislators to stop California’s water tax

With the election of Democrat Gavin Newsom as governor, and of Demonrats to a majority in California’s State Assembly (61 D, 19 R) and Senate (28 D, 10 R), socialist California hurtles further down what economist Friedrich Hayek called “the road to serfdom”.

As DCG reported in her post of January 13, 2019, Newsom proposed in the 2019-20 state budget a new water tax, euphemistically called the “safe and affordable drinking water fund” that would “enable the State Water Resources Control Board to assist communities, particularly disadvantaged communities, in paying for the short-term and long-term costs of obtaining access to safe and affordable drinking water.”

The details of the proposed tax are unknown, but a similar proposal was abandoned by then-Governor Jerry Brown last year after failing to garner enough support in the legislature. Under Brown’s plan, California residents would have been taxed 95 cents a month, or $11.40 a year.

In a Facebook post, Konstantinos Roditis, Vice Chairman of Reform California and the 2018 Republican nominee for California State Controller, writes:

Despite California’s cost of living being unsustainable, Gov. Gavin Newsom wants to add yet ANOTHER tax — this time on your water. Between the gas tax, a car tax, and even a tax on text messages (which we killed), Gavin Newsom and weak Sacramento politicians like the ones below are coming right for your wallet…again.

We’re launching a massive campaign to make sure that these Water Tax Weaklings vote NO on the Water Tax.

The legislators to contact are:

  1. Sen. Anna Caballero (D-Salinas)
  2. Assembly member Sabrina Cervantes (D-Riverside)
  3. Assembly member Tasha Horvath (D-Encinitas)
  4. Assembly member Jacqui Irwin (D-Thousand Oaks)
  5. Assembly member Brian Maienschein (R to D – San Dieg0): This POS changed parties from Republican to Democrat on Jan. 24, 2019, after he was elected.
  6. Assembly member Cottie Petrie-Norris (D-Laguna Beach)
  7. Assembly member Sharon Quirk-Silva (D-Fullerton)
  8. Assembly member James Ramos (D-Highland)
  9. Sen. Richard Roth (D-Riverside)
  10. Assembly member Christy Smith (D-Santa Clarita)
  11. Sen. Tom Umberg (D-Santa Ana)

Liberal Lunacy: Tax taxpayers to conserve water, but let in millions of water using invaders!

More immigrant invaders, more pollution, more of those hateful globull warming causing green house gases, less open spaces/wildlife habitat, less wildlife. Green is Red! Liberalism is a mental illness, and environmentalists are frauds!

Part of CA politics IS water politics…from it’s very beginnings as a state. We are a patchwork quilt of independent, elected water districts that NOW, Sacramento wants to supercede politically for a new tax. Listen all you outside of CA…..I pay sometimes$400- $500 a month for WATER in July, August, September, October, and I have a half acre of which I only “water” enough (2-3 times weekly for 20 minutes each) to have a weed patch in my front yard/door for my dog to pee on. We “recycle” water as much as we can…like dumping the old pet drinking water… Read more »

Parody Song; Who Would Tax The Rain (Who Will Stop The Rain)
During yesterday’s deluge, only one man was happy…..Anthony Brown. He was ecstatic thinking about all that tax money falling from the sky. Who will stop the rain (tax)? Larry Hogan! (Maryland)

Taking over public utilities was an important step in the Communist/Democrat takeover of our nation to destroy it and us.

As a native born Californian, I praise and thank God many times a day that I no longer live in California. I pray for those who are unable to leave, whether it be employment or family that keeps them in that state of hell.

Thomas Jefferson:
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

Top 20 Stupid Taxes – Our government (from both sides) has really come up and passed some really strange and in most cases, idiotic taxes just to try and drain more money from our pockets. Only a devious and manipulative person could ever think of these taxes but then again, we are talking about politicians. Below are my top 20 that will humor you, if they weren’t really true. #20 Alabama Card Tax: Alabama is the only state charging a 10-cent tax for decks of playing cards. #19 West Virginia: Glow Worm Tax: No I’m not kidding; West Virginia imposes… Read more »
