CALIFORNIA: Government campaigns for tax hikes, calls it "education"

In a political campaign, city officials can spend your own money against you. They call it 'education'

Californians going to the polls on Nov. 8 will find more than 300 measures to raise taxes. And despite multiple legal decisions limiting the practice, municipal officials in California may be paying outside consultants to run the campaign to sell you on your local tax measure.

In short, government officials use the public’s money to persuade the public to give government officials more money.
