Few things feed fascism like calls for “shrinking government.” This fairy tale about citizen legislators is one of them.
What these ideologues lack is any combination of the intellect or the integrity to tell you that “Smaller Government” has reduced the pool of professionals who know how it works at all. This pool consists of professional legislative analysts who cycle through state operations as lobbyists. This project will serve to make the influence of these un-elected people greater
I denounce Assemblywoman Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) and Taxfighter Ted Costa of People’s Advocate for their malice towards the interest of Californians, ignorance and dishonesty.
