Voting No.

IMO the feds should increase their gas tax to finance infrastuce. 5 cents. The high cost of fuel is not a tax issue. It’s an oil company issue.
LOL...: California has the second highest gas tax in the country. 12 cents alone isn’t a lot but on top of the rest of the crap we’re taxed on adds up. State tax, property tax, sales tax, utilities tax, cell phone tax, dmv, bonds, etc.....

Sacramento never met a tax they didn’t like.

You can bet that if 6 passes the Democrats will go into full alarm attack. They'll suddenly find provisional ballots that were never counted, and most all against 6. A car out back with a box of ballots in the trunk that was forgotten about and again almost all against 6, and mail in ballots that were never counted and again against 6.
And ballots that are for 6 thrown out because they can say the signature didn't match.
This is a lot of money especially year after year and they ain't going to let that go.
Their spending millions to keep their tax they have way more money than in favor of 6.
Remember Yes on 6 repeals the gas and car tax increase.
Their still is plenty of gas and car tax money if 6 passes.

Of course they do, duh. I was reponding to the argument that the gas tax adds up to only 12 cents a gallon and that we shouldn’t complain about such a small amount. This same argument is used by some every time some politician decides to introduce a new bond issue, sales tax or property tax increase.

Point is we already have the highest tax on gas and abysmal roads because of.......democrats. Siphoning, pun intended, the money for other nonsense.


Solution. Don't give in, don't let them take the easy route and just tax the poor, again. Make them figure it out.

Well, when you say let "them" figure it out, if you are actually a citizen of CA, it's also your problem. So, it's not about someone else figuring out how to fix anything, you need to take some responsibility here.

So, let's say, for instance, that Cox gets elected. How will the roads get fixed? Will there magically be fairy dust Republican money available for road repairs?

For sure, but we know the gas tax was forced in by democrats with a super majority, knowing full well that the existing gas tax was not being used to fund road repairs. Now a fiscal conservative will undoubtedly help, but he will be surrounded by a sea of idiots. Its kind of like the arbitrary minimum 'living wage'. Why not make it $30/hour? Why not add 50 cents a gallon, then our problems would go away.


Drive across the border to Arizona and enjoy $1 per gallon less in cost and the difference in the condition of the roads are start, it's embarrassing.


One of your points about the tax not being raised in 20 years!? Who cares, that was supposed to be temporary to begin with.
