The approval is a significant victory for Mr. Brown, a Democrat, who has staked his governorship on a campaign to raise taxes to ease the effects of the state's budget crunch.

Just find the three or four people that voted against it and gay marriage the thing.

It's not like people voting on something in California really means anything.

Big deal.

A quarter point increase in sales tax. Fifty bucks more on a new car.

Taxes are supposed to be subject to popular vote, civil rights aren't.

Tell me...when do we, as a nation, go to the polls and decide whether or not to retain the Bush tax cuts? What day is that happening?

Why do you insist on making shit up and passing it off as fact? Oh wait, lying liberal. Nevermind.

It is a big deal you asswipe. This is going to hit the poor in this state more than the rich you ignorant fucktard. The rich can move out of here while the poor are stuck here. It's also going to drive businesses out of state, taking the jobs they provide with them. Maybe if you actually lived here you would understand but, then again, if you did live here you would have voted for this abomination. I'm fucking tired of out of state assholes like you saying "big deal" when they're not affected by it in the least.
