Jerry Brown LASHES OUT: ‘California Taxpayers Are FREELOADERS!’

Governor Moonbeam in California is totally tone deaf to his constituents and doesn’t seem to give a flying crap that Californians are already taxed more on gasoline than anyone else in the country. That didn’t stop Jerry Brown from calling taxpayers “freeloaders” last week because they didn’t support his monstrous 12 cent a gallon gas tax hike. California is broke both financially and morally. They seem to find $30 million to defend illegal aliens, but they can’t help their own by cutting spending. They are out of control.

People are angry at Brown because the state keeps piling on more and more taxes on an overburdened populace. They can’t afford to live, yet the government there keeps taking more and more and more. State Assemblyman Josh Newman is being recalled because he supported Brown on the gas tax and he should be. That’s when Brown pitched a fit and called Californians freeloaders. Jerry Brown is destroying the state and speeding it up.

California Governor Jerry Brown referred to taxpayers as “freeloaders” last week for objecting to his new gas tax and car fee hikes.

“The freeloaders — I’ve had enough of them … They have a president that doesn’t tell the truth and they’re following suit,” he said. Brown was speaking in Orange County, defending State Assembly newcomer Josh Newman (D-Fullerton), who is facing a recall effort after voting for Brown’s new transportation taxes in April.

The new tax raises existing gas taxes — already among the highest in the nation — by 12 cents per gallon, with higher taxes on diesel, and slaps car owners with higher annual registration fees. Critics have pointed out that the burden of the tax falls most heavily on middle-class Californians.

The Orange County Register, which covered Brown’s remarks, adds that Brown is sparing no effort to keep Newman in office. “He’ll have whatever he needs,” the Register quotes the governor as saying.

Kira Davis, commenting at RedState, nailed it nicely:

The 1,000,000 citizens in Los Angeles county alone who collect food stamps provided by taxpayers are not freeloaders. The millions of illegal immigrants being harbored in California’s sanctuary cities to the cost of taxpayers are not freeloaders. Illegal immigrants being provided “free” legal help by the state on the backs of taxpayers are not freeloaders. The bloodsuckers in the Sacramento legislature who get paid $178 a day in per diem funds on top of their bloated salaries just for walking in the door to their job every day are not freeloaders.

No, you – the burdened, law-abiding taxpayer are the freeloader for simply asking the government of California be more fiscally responsible with the money they already have instead of stealing more of your money without your consent to pay for programs that are already funded but have been raided for pet projects and personal enrichment.

Jerry Brown has infamously called Californians ‘stupid’ before for not supporting his Marxist policies. Brown is claiming that all of California will be driving on gravel roads if they don’t open their pocketbooks more. This is insane. All the money they already take for infrastructure is not getting where it is supposed to go… it is lining the pockets of corrupt politicians like Brown.

Brown and his cronies care more about high speed rail than fixing dams or maintaining the freeway system in the Golden State. If you are a hard working person there, it is demanded of you that you support those who aren’t in a socialist utopia. And if you want accountability, then you are stupid and a freeloader.

I’ll leave you with one more parting quote from Kira Davis, because dayum… I love it!

Governor Brown, you are a narcissistic, selfish, rude, disgusting pig and you don’t deserve the massive privilege you’ve been afforded by people who work hard and struggle just to pay the rent and their enormous tax bills.

Kindly make like the prostitute you are and go fluff yourself.
