CRP Statement in Response to Governor Brown's Call for Massive Tax Increases

SACRAMENTO — California Republican Party Chairman Tom Del Beccaro today issued the following statement in response to Governor Brown's latest call for massive new tax increases:

"For more than a decade, Sacramento Democrats have been coming up with one tax raising scheme or another - none of which have worked. The answer to our budget and revenue problems lies not in taking more money from those already working but in finding work for those that are not.

"The fact that Governor Brown refused to present his tax hike to the press today demonstrates that he knows it is an unworthy proposal. Rather than simply sending Californians invoices for his spending sprees, he should go about reducing the size of the California government."
