Buy Hgh No Prescription, Several years ago, Stephan Pastis, the creator of "Pearls Before Swine," drew a cartoon that illustrates the threat now faced by taxpayers. 500mg Hgh, In the comic, Zebra is complaining to his friend Goat that he was being sued by crocodiles, 10mg Hgh. Hgh craiglist, The crocodiles' cause of action. "Defendant Zebra has willfully failed to be plaintiffs' food, Hgh usa, 20mg Hgh, in breach of Natural Law ... Plaintiffs seek defendant Zebra cooked medium well over a barbecue pit."
Taxpayers know what it is like to be Zebra, Hgh australia, 200mg Hgh, as the tax-and-spend lobby is accelerating its use of the courts in an effort to make sure that those who pay the bills are the main course of government's feast.
Particularly alarming is a suit filed by former UCLA Chancellor Charles Young asking the court to declare unconstitutional Proposition 13's requirement of a two-thirds vote for the Legislature to impose new state taxes, Buy Hgh No Prescription.
The two-thirds vote to increase state taxes was written into Proposition 13 by Howard Jarvis and Paul Gann for good reason, Hgh paypal. 1000mg Hgh, Once the 1978 measure put limits on annual increases in property taxes, the authors wanted to keep government from just reaching into another of the taxpayers' pockets to make up the difference, Hgh india. 50mg Hgh, Still, it has been proven that a two-thirds vote is attainable, Hgh japan. Hgh canada, In 1991, the Legislature increased sales and income taxes with a two-thirds vote, Hgh overseas. Buy Hgh No Prescription, Earlier this year, the Legislature imposed the most massive tax increase in the history of all 50 states, again achieving the super-majority requirement. 250mg Hgh, Although the new taxes are supposed to sunset after two years, California now competes with New Jersey for the heaviest tax burden in the nation, Hgh coupon. Hgh ebay, Young's suit attempts to make the case that Proposition 13 is invalid because it is a revision, not an amendment, 750mg Hgh, 150mg Hgh, to the State Constitution. This argument was made in the 1978 case, Hgh uk, 30mg Hgh, Amador Valley Joint Union High School District v. State Board of Equalization and was rejected by the California Supreme Court, 100mg Hgh. However, Young argues that the Court's decision applies to other aspects of Proposition 13, not the two-thirds vote, Buy Hgh No Prescription. Hgh us, To ensure that Proposition 13 will be vigorously defended, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association has asked the Supreme Court for permission to intervene in the case as an additional defendant, Hgh mexico. 40mg Hgh, Our request argues that, without our involvement, Proposition 13 and the two-thirds vote requirement for passing a budget will not get a fair hearing.
Although Young's suit must be taken very seriously -- just look at what is at stake -- there is a high probability that taxpayers will prevail. The great weight of legal authority leans heavily on the side of Proposition 13's constitutionality. Buy Hgh No Prescription, Another recent lawsuit should also be resolved favorably to taxpayers. Senate Majority Leader Darrel Steinberg, miffed that Governor Schwarzenegger actually reduced spending to more closely match revenue, has argued that that those reductions in spending were illegal. But, as cogently argued by Arnold's legal team and others, the Governor's constitutional authority to reduce budget appropriations is plenary.
If Steinberg realizes, as he should, that his lawsuit has little chance of success, why bring it. Well, why does a career politician do anything. The answer is in the title of an analysis by political pundit Anthony York: "Steinberg Lawsuit Offers Political Dividends."
Indeed, York unabashedly acknowledges that the suit was filed for reasons other than the underlying legal merits: "Whether he wins or loses the legal battle, the benefits for Steinberg are manifold, Buy Hgh No Prescription. It allows Steinberg to get back into the graces of Democratic interest groups, who have watched Democrats approve deep budget cuts. It also gives Democrats a political opening to hammer Schwarzenegger."
But on this issue, taxpayers are squarely in the Governor's corner and his actions to cut spending were not only constitutional, they reflect good policy.
In any event, the interests of taxpayers are threatened not only when the Legislature is in session. The courts are another battlefield upon which taxpayers must be willing to fight and to take the best weapons they have available to them. As dozens of published cases make clear, organizations with experienced litigators like Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association are great weapons to bring to the battle. CRO
