Thank you. Every vote was important.
Great victories in California.
We defeated the billionaires efforts to crush organized labor and to continue the anti tax radicalism.
We defeated the anti labor proposition 32.
We passed Prop. 30, to fund schools, universities and social services. The schools will be funded this year and next year. This is a floor under austerity. It raises taxes on the rich to pay for services. It does raise income tax by ¼ of percent – but 90% of the tax increases are on the rich . A tax of 1-3 % on those who make over $250,000 per year.
My own Congressional district is so close that it can not be called yet.
