Today 6 of 10 in California, also have the perception that California ranks above average or near the top in state and local income tax burden per capita.
On the 08 April, I wrote here that ‘California Tax Freedom Day’ is 6 days later (30 April) than it was in 2013 and 10 days later than it was in 2012
(FOX News) A recent survey of 148 insurance brokers shows that health insurance premiums are seeing their sharpest price increase perhaps ever and are largely due to changes mandated by ObamaCare.

Flashback: Gone are the days when Obama claimed that health insurance premiums for a family would be $2,500 lower by the end of his first term, they were already actually about $3,000 higher according to The Wall Street Journal in January, 2013 a spread of $5,500 per family.
Another Obama broken promise.

(CBS Los Angeles) The average price for a gallon of self-serve regular gas has spiked to their highest levels since last Summer. On Thursday, according to Santa Clarita Valley Signal regular unleaded gas prices average $4.07 to $4.29 a gallon.
Flashback: Remember when then candidate for president Senator Barack Obama said that rising gasoline prices were a crisis and the result of George W Bush’s failed energy policies, or when Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) blasted George Bush for high gas prices and when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) echoing Pelosi’s comments said that gasoline prices were “the number one issue facing America today.”
Where is the outrage from Democrats today during Obama’s Watch???

(FOX News) Momentum is building behind what would be an unprecedented effort to amend the Constitution and balance the federal budget, in the wake of lawmakers in the State of Michigan, becoming the 34th state to exercise their rights triggering the 2/3 necessary pursuant to Article V of the Constitution of the United States.
In the wake of Michigan’s vote, Rep Duncan Hunter (R-CA) pressed House Speaker John Boehner yesterday to determine whether the states crossed the necessary threshold to begin the process of achieving a balanced budget amendment and Obama, can’t do a damn thing about it.
If 2/3 of the states have indeed called for a constitutional convention, the ball is now in Congress’ court.
The last time a successful amendment was ratified was May 1992 the 27th Amendment on Congressional pay increases.
(AP) Cancer patients relieved that their health insurance can no longer be canceled because of life-time caps are discovering that of the 23 cancer centers that are part of the Natl Comprehensive Cancer Network that only 4 of the centers are able to accept ObamaCare–less access to these cancer centers means that patients may not get the most advanced cancer treatments, including clinical trials and news drugs.
On the 03 November, the Wall Street Journal reported that California Stage-4 Cancer patient Edie Sundby, lost her health insurance coverage and access to her cancer doctors due to ObamaCare, despite the President Obama and many Democrats promise, ‘that if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, period.”
Now cancer patients are discovering that thanks to ObamaCare, most life-saving cancer treatment centers are off limits to them too.
