Californians, the Primaries are Tuesday, and I'll admit like most people I have a bad habit of NOT voting in the primaries.
I will be there this Tuesday with bells on.. why? Prop 56.
It looks good on paper, it's a smoke screen the fine print is the bastard.
They are touting this prop as a "Politicians won't get paid and will forgo all salaries if they can't balance the budgets they promise in the time frame they promised"
The fine print?
It also stipulates that politicians can add or raise taxes without a house 3/4 majority vote, dropping it to less than 1/4
This means they can add or raise taxes willy nilly so they can balance the budget and keep their grossly overpaid salaries in the bargain.
Californian's will lose with this prop, VOTE NO!

I loathe politics, I hate being a grown up who has to pay attention to these things.
Now my analogy is in a nutshell and in laymen’s terms, read your sample ballots, 56 is a dick.
On an unrelated note... Tony Schaloob seriously rocks my socks. Best Character actor IMO ever.
