In California, the Democrats have a super-majority. Whatever they want to pass, they can pass with the signature of Gov. Hairgel.
This week, a bill that Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R) had proposed to suspend the highest state gas tax in the country (61 cents total) was allowed to go to hearing. Kiley’s Spidey-Senses went into overdrive because Democrats in Sacramento never do the “right thing.” And they didn’t. They highjacked his bill and used it as a vehicle to increase taxes on Californians. Instead of a needed break, they poured gasoline on taxpayers and threw a match on us.
It’s remarkable what complete goons California Democrat lawmakers are.
. @KevinKileyCA said he WAS expecting something to happen with his 'Gas Tax Holiday' bill in the Transportation Committee yesterday, but called what actually unfolded a hijacking.

Watch how they collectively cower and protect their own cowardice — because they have the numbers.
Even though she supports Lee’s amendments, @laurafriedman43 refuses to become the author of the bill, saying “I have not had a chance to dive in depth into this.”@KevinKileyCA responds, “We are willing to own our proposal. You’re not even willing to put your name on yours.” pic.twitter.com/jqgWdUq6GK
