California! Where everyone’s a millionaire! [Darleen Click]
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday defended his characterization that his tax initiative primarily helps schools, rejecting criticism from the backer of a rival tax proposal who says he is distorting the benefits.
Los Angeles attorney Molly Munger told The Associated Press last week that Brown is being untruthful by saying most of the money from his initiative will go to schools. She said she started running TV commercials about her initiative to “get the truth out.”
As recently as last week, Brown told reporters “100 percent” of the taxes he’s proposing would go to education. [...]
Brown also defended calling his proposal a “millionaires tax” on his initiative campaign website, even though the income threshold would be $250,000.
“Anybody who makes $250,000 becomes a millionaire very quickly if you save it. You just need four years,” Brown said. “It is a millionaires tax. It taxes millionaires, right? And it’s for schools. And it protects public safety.”
