There is no doubt the cost of living is too high in the Golden state. When one out of five Californians lives at or below the poverty line it is clear we need change. Families young and old are fleeing the state as high inflation, rising gas taxes, high rent and soaring housing prices devastate California families' budgets. Yet the solution from most Sacramento politicians is to continue to implement policies to raise your taxes, eliminate taxpayer safeguards like Proposition 13, and increase regulations on small businesses. It is time for commonsense to rule the day. Our state needs to lower the cost of living by lowering taxes and fees, reducing unnecessary regulations on businesses, and ensuring every Californian can attain a home they can afford.
