6/16/11: Response to Governor Brown's budget veto

June 16, 2011 -- For Immediate Release

Response to Governor Brown's Budget Veto 
by SaveCalifornia.com President Randy Thomasson

Sacramento, California -- In response to today's veto by Governor Jerry Brown of the Democrats' budget bill, Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a non-profit, non-partisan statewide organization that promotes moral virtues for the common good, released the following statement:

"Jerry Brown may like higher taxes and fees, but he's doesn't like them in an obvious sham budget or in a way that makes him look bad. Whether his veto is for the sake of image or principle doesn't matter as much as the fact that California families have been saved, for the time being, from more taxes and fees that take away their hard-earned money for a wasteful, greedy government to devour. We call on principled Californians to rise up and urge their state legislators -- especially Republican assemblymembers and senators who can stop the Democrats' money grab -- to resist any and all tax hikes or fee hikes at the state and local levels."
