Democrats in Sacramento have always proclaimed California as the leading state. If one looks at the complete picture, it is definitely No. 1!
Californians enjoy the highest taxes on income, sales and gas. The huge numbers of individuals on food stamps and welfare make California the No. 1 "nanny state."
Our leaders can boast that California has ranked as the worst state to do business in over the past seven years. Expensive, burdensome, and impractical regulatory and environmental restrictions lead the nation. The new "temporary" 3 percent state income tax will only speed up the exodus of businesses leaving our state.
