Hey, you voted it in…..

A ballot measure to repeal California’s controversial new gas tax sponsored by Assemblyman and Republican governor candidate Travis Allen failed to submit signatures by its deadline this week. But voters could still have a chance to have their say on the law in November, as a separate ballot measure to repeal it continues to gather signatures.

Allen’s campaign was unable to collect signatures due to a series of legal battles with Attorney General Xavier Becerra last year over the wording of the ballot measure, Allen said in an interview Friday afternoon.

    Face palm: You can’t get enough signatures to repeal an outrageous gas tax, but you’re going to split the state. Yeah right.

      We didn’t even get the 365K signatures for a ballot initiative to veto the new gun laws.

    In every poll of CA voters, it was shown that a large majority were against this tax. The legislators were the only ones to vote for it. But obviously it is the voters who vote those shitheads into office. So yeah, you voted in those who voted to pass this bill into law. So suck on it.

    To emphasize that point, of the state’s estimated 6 to eight million firearm owners, roughly half (or more) continue to vote for the socialists who want to eliminate the RKBA. It’s beyond full retard.

    The bill was a quid pro quo of great magnitude. Most votes were gotten through promising huge projects to the districts of hold out legislators. Even those who’s districts are in the Sierra foothills held out until promised their piece of the taxpayer.pie. ‘Free’ money for everyone! Just surrender your conscience. Satan must be laughing his forked tail off.

    Here’s a laugh, back when the bill was passed the SJ Mercury wrote that bill, “squeaked by in the Senate 27-11. It then headed to the Assembly, where it passed narrowly, 54-26.” 27-11 is squeaking by? 54-26 is narrow?

    Here in the Democratic Peoples Republic of Washington there is a problem with the anti-tax stuff getting on the ballot since the State Attorney General goes over the signatures with a fine tooth comb, but the faggy liberal ballot measures get a pass.

      Is it true Inslees’ new “carbon tax/slush fund” measure exempts corporations and government entities? Seems as if the accidental lesbian Kate Brown is going to try the same thing in Oregon.

    In November, 2/3 of California voters decided to increase the cost of my cigarettes by 2 bucks a pack. You know that 80-90% probably don’t smoke, so they were voting for a tax increase that wouldn’t cost THEM a dime. On the other hand, I live 2.5 miles from work and so use very little gas. The gas tax is not a hardship for me. They can go fuck themselves.

    I’m told that I can be a little vindictive

Play nice.
