Boxer and Feinstein attack PTA because of tax ballot issue

Posted by billamos on August 21, 2012 at 7:00 PM


If you thought it was strange that California's U.S. senators, Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, attacked the sponsors of the tax-hike-for-schools initiative Prop 38 last week, a new poll provides an explanation.

Prop 38 is gaining.

The latest in a series of polls from Pepperdine University and the California Business Roundtable show that Prop 38, a 12-year income tax hike to create new moneys for schools, is gaining. It is the first of the three polls when there were more "yes" supporters than "no" supporters in the poll.

The poll, taken late last week, came as Feinstein, Boxer and legislative leaders sent a letter to the California PTA, which is sponsoring the measure along with wealthy civil rights attorney Molly Munger.

The letter urged the PTA to stop being negative about Prop 30, the competing temporary tax measure backed by Gov. Jerry Brown and organized labor.
