Lies and Obfuscation - California Prop 56

I heard another ad on the radio for the Proposition from Hell - Prop 56. The ad sounded so wonderful. The Prop is the solution to all budget grid-lock in Sacramento, it's a positive panacea, a balm for all budget woes. I'm surprised they didn't have sweet Tinkabel fairy music playing to give the ad that magical feel.

Yes Prop 56 is so good that those nasty politicians won't get paid if they don't pass a budget on time. And the wondrous, fabulous Prop 56 gives them the means to do it - unlimited ability to INCREASE TAXES. Of course they don't mention that in the ad because nobody would vote for this piece of crap if they knew the truth - Prop 56 gives a virtual carte blanch to the overspending idiots in Sacramento to tax us to death.

So guess how I'm voting on Prop 56?
