You read it correct- Prop 63, the first famous “Tax the Rich” proposition.

Proposition 63, passed by California voters in 2004, has been hailed by mental health advocates as an irreplaceable source of funding, while facing persistent criticism about oversight.

Rose King, a political consultant who helped craft Proposition 63, said that before the state starts spending money on housing construction, it should repair a mental health system that she said fails to reach many Californians who need it.

“We totally oppose this,” she said.

It looks like the Moloch is settling in to his temple nicely in Sacramento. When the great Moloch is deign to administer his duties to do anything – he is out front on stuff like this.
The fiscal genius as he likes to call himself is helping ADD to the state’s massive debt – according to Moorlach’s buddy, the gun grabbing generalissimo of the State Senate, Kevin DeLeon:

Senate Democrats estimate annual debt service on a $2 billion bond would require about $130 million of about $1.8 billion in annual Proposition 63 revenue.

John Moorlach would have us all believe that HE is the fiscal watchdog of the California State Senate – yet he wants to expand the size of state government, thus screwing private charities that handle homeless services and creating untold future liabilities for maintaining this grab-bag of new stuff.
Where is the John Moorlach we all knew? That man is gone – 20+ years in office of enjoying the largesse and riches of government will do that to you if you are not properly grounded.

In addition to the $2 billion bond, de León, D-Los Angeles, said he will push for $200 million out of the general fund budget over four years to provide rent subsidies for homeless people. He will also seek to increase in the Supplemental Security Income/State Supplementary Payment grants that help low-income seniors and people with disabilities. The measure would not have to go on the ballot, but would be part of the budget negotiations with Brown.

John Moorlach knows that Government-Sponsored programs for the homeless do not work as well as private programs. He should have seen as such from his perch atop all the serfs of Orange County.

Yet, here he is spending money like a drunken sailor. Big Government John, perched on the altar waiting to spend more of our money.
Don Wagner? A business owner. A real person. Someone who knows how to spend money wisely.
