Party Positions on Ballot Measures

by ECT

Scott Lay put out earlier this week a nice breakdown of where each party stands on the November Ballot Measures.   While I understand the Governors tax hikes will be the headline on the ballot, the real interesting battle will be Prop. 32 as the rhetoric has already began.

Prop. 32 is essentially an attack on the democratic process in the United States as it strips away one voice in an argument while allowing another to continue with business as usual. In the terms of “fairness”, I personally cannot get behind it.  What is silly to me is this talk about “special interest” when the people who write the bill are essentially their own “special interest” of the rich and large corporations. This is America and working families deserve some representation and Prop 32 destroys that.  Both sides of an issue deserve a voice.

Here is a breakdown of both parties and where their support is on each of the Ballot Measures this November.

Burk, not sure I agree with you on Prop. 32. Don’t be a fool and switch your position before it’s too late.
