The California governor just proposed a tax on something that will make your jaw drop
If you thought California was nutty under Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, you haven’t seen anything yet.
Gavin Newsom (D) promised to provide healthcare to illegals in his swearing-in ceremony.
But Newsom’s latest proposal takes the cake.
California Governor Gavin Newsom is proposing a new tax on drinking water.
The Blaze reports:
California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) wants to tax the state’s drinking water, a move he says will allow poor people access to safe and affordable water.
When did this come up?
Newsom’s proposed 2019-20 budget includes the creation a “safe and affordable drinking water fund,” to “enable the State Water Resources Control Board to assist communities, particularly disadvantaged communities, in paying for the short-term and long-term costs of obtaining access to safe and affordable drinking water,” SFgate.com reported.
The Association of California Water Agencies, which represents more than 400 water suppliers across the state, swiftly rebuked the idea of a water tax. In a statement, the association said it would be “highly problematic” and not necessary due to what it calls the state’s ample budget surplus.
Californians are fleeing the state in droves to escape the high cost of living and the insane tax burden.
According to California’s own Legislative Analyst’s Office, the state lost one million residents to other states over the last decade.
But California’s population continues to rise because they’re being replaced with illegals due to its status as a Sanctuary State.
Newsom’s proposal demonstrates how desperate the state of California has become.
He’s squeezing every penny he can from American taxpayers to subsidize healthcare for illegal aliens.
