Prop 9 in California

June 1980
National Review;6/27/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 13, p767
The article discusses the decision of California voters to reject Proposition 9, which seeks to cut income taxes in the state by fifty percent. It discusses how liberals reacted to the decision and how they associated it to the campaign of Ronald Reagan. It examines the implications of the decision, arguing that the people viewed the tax cut as a windfall for the rich. It claims that the rejection of the proposal did not reflect a growing love for taxes. It also argues that Howard Jarvis' campaign for the proposition did it more harm than good.
