Tax hikes are unnecessary. California businesses already pay their fair share

With news of California companies moving to states where taxes and other operating costs are lower, it’s difficult to believe that some groups want to hit in-state employers with another tax increase. But that is precisely the pitch made by special-interest groups trying to convince voters that California’s business taxes are too low. Taxes must be increased so businesses will pay their “fair share,” the argument goes. What tax-increase proponents don’t mention is that the corporation tax is a g...

My broken rib, lack of skiing skills, a daughter who needs a devoted mother to feed her, and my love of silence allowed me the avenue to stay home. I am...
