Interesting reading, thankyer. I must admit that Prop 87 is one I found v. difficult to decide for/against.

One of the factors they don't mention in the article (because it's one that nobody is talking about) is that the produciton tax being proposed is similar to production taxes in place in both Louisiana and Texas. That puts a real nail in the argument that this would reduce production.

As usual, the Democratic bullshit is touchy-feely bullshit, and the Republican/business bullshit is fear and terror bullshit.

Oh, and if you like reading this sort of thing, you really should subscribe to the FactCheck mailing list.

Done. Thanks for the reminder. BTW, I've seen you on replies to folks on my f-list. I like your LJ and added you as a friend. Hope you'll do the same.

Once or twice... I think first at the SA party at TorCon, but most recently at a BASFA meeting in Anaheim.

I'd have to say that anything that is so feared by the big oil companies can't be all *that* bad.... :-)

JOhn.

I chuckle that the amount spent on this proposition is probably larger in proportion to the proposed revenue than on any other proposition in the state's history. How long before we reach the point where more money is spent arguing about a tax than the tax would raise? :)
