Just remember that the politicos cannot put in place a split tax roll without a vote of the people. It was a constitutional amendment that enacted Prop 13 and will require a constitutional amendment to change it. There may be a super majority of democrats in the legislature but not in the state - yet. James McCarthy - Elk Grove, CA

The idea of raising taxes on commerical property sounds rational at first, but these politicians can't just raise it a little. They will push and push until businesses leave the state. Make government spend within their means. They can do it if we make them, if we give them more money they will just spend more money, that's a beaurocracy. They just get bigger. Let them work smarter not more expensively. Say No to more taxes!!!

If they get away with increasing commercial property taxes then how long will it be before they increase residential property taxes? We need better people running for office that we can vote for, both Democrats & Republicans, because all of who we've got now suck

Pay attention to who supports it and remember to ALWAYS vote against them for the rest of their careers!

With democrats holding super majority in both houses of the state legislature they intend to overthrow what the tax payers passed. Typical of the tax, spend and tax more democrats. There's little wonder why more working class are leaving the state to make room for more illegals to move in and receive social programs. But who will be taxed in ten years with everyone receiving welfare?

We're getting closer by the day to a situation where there will be more people on the dole and less people working to pay into the programs, via taxes, to support those programs/people. Just what will our Democratic officials do then? Between the State and Federal direction these days, the working man stands no chance. Maybe it is time for us all to put our hands out for some of that govt payolla too. Forget having a job, become part of the gimme gnerations instead.

The democrats will absolutely ensure that they tax everyone, and every business to death, until the only people left in California are those on government assistance. Is it any wonder that businesses and taxpayers are fleeing this state in record numbers?
