If they ask for a tax increase, they know people will say no.

So they try and trick you. They tell you the money will be spent on people with disabilities and military veterans, when in fact they aim to spend most of it on government welfare housing.

California is already the highest taxed state in the nation.

Sorry, we can’t afford to raise taxes just to buy houses for people.

If you can’t afford to live here, move to Omaha or some other place that is more reasonably priced.

The remaining $1.5 billion will go toward housing illegals also which they are not telling you. California cannot afford anymore bond issues.

We support Prop1. The Cal Vet loan program is wonderful and we were able to use it when my husband got out of the army during the Vietnam War. For all those people who support veterans, this is a way to put your money where your mouth is.
We all know that housing costs are through the roof. Thie Multi Family Housing program is a way that young families will be able to afford a home of their own.

As far a Prop 6 goes, We strongly oppose it. If you want safe roads, this is the only way to do it!
