With virtually no notice to the public, Democratic politicians in the California State Legislature crammed through a massive hike to the Car Tax and Gas Tax.
Fortunately, former San Diego City Councilman Carl DeMaio has unveiled a strategy for getting citizens involved in overturning these tax hikes! More on that in a bit, but first you need to understand how these tax hikes will cost YOU!
Car Tax: Pay More, Get Less!
Depending on the value of your car, miles driven, and your MPG, the typical California family will end up paying $350-700 more per year under the Car Tax and Gas Tax hike!
What’s worse, the money is spent with virtually zero accountability for fixing roads! In fact, Californians already pay the highest gas tax in the country and yet we still have the worst roads. For every $1 in average costs for road repairs spent in the other 49 states in the US, California spends $4.7 dollars for the same repairs – resulting in wasteful spending of 470 percent more!
“Politicians have been caught stealing gas tax monies and recent audits show billions in waste that should be going to road repairs,” notes Carl DeMaio. “The Car Tax and Gas Tax hike contains zero reforms of wasteful spending, meaning we are throwing good money after bad,” DeMaio warns.

The Democrat’s bullying and silencing tactics aren’t just happening at speeches or on college campuses they are happening IN OUR CAPITOL!
Senator Janet Nguyen, who is a refugee from the Vietnam War, was denied her First Amendment rights by the California Democratic Leadership in the Senate Chamber for speaking her opposition to the Communist-led government in Vietnam.
If you stand with Senator Nguyen and believe every American has the right to speak freely without fear of reprisal, then sign our petition today.
