Jerry Brown struggles to gain support for his tax plan

April 10th, 2011

The Governor Jerry Brown has said he will be capable of reaching a deal on his tax proposals by calling on Republicans to support him. Mr Brown said people had to be persuaded and encouraged by developing a momentum and a mood in which people could face the reality of the current economic climate.

The Democrat is having to face a $15.4 billion deficit and will attempt to reduce this by raising income tax, tax on vehicles and sales tax. He is quoted as saying that gathering support from Republican politicians for this measure has been about as successful as winning support for abortion from the Catholic community. He recently hosted a budget forum at the district of Riversdale, which is run by the Republican Bob Dutton. Brown had been in talks with a total of five Republicans before discussions collapsed, much to his dismay.

Meanwhile, the Mayor of Los Alomitos, Troy Edgar, has made it clear that schools in Orange Country have become increasingly concerned about the impact of service cuts if the government does not extended taxes. He believes bringing educators into the debate could help generate a greater public awareness and bring the policy ’to the people’. However, it is noted that many people voted against Brown during 2010’s gubernatorial election’. Edgar believes he will have to face ’an uphill battle’, as the general impression amongst most residents of Orange County is that raising taxes is not the answer to state debts. They believe tax rises will make it more difficult for families to afford college fees, holidays in Hotels in Looe and energy costs.
