Excellent Summary – “BOTTOM LINE: Our Proposition Picks”

1  NO  “A big-government ‘housing' bond (more costly than a direct tax, this would cost California taxpayers $5.9 BILLION) that would create a new dependent class with the State replacing the private sector in the development of new housing.”

2  NO  “Another big-government ‘housing' bond costing taxpayers up to $5.6 BILLION, while doing zero to solve mental illness, yet rewarding transients.”

3  NO  “This very expensive ‘water' bond would ‘soak' taxpayers for $17.3 BILLION at the behest of the inhuman environmental groups, without constructing any new water storage for Californians, who pay too much for too little water.”

4  NO  “A $2.9 BILLION money-grab by hospitals (this the 3rd time since 2004 that the private sector has qualified a ballot measure demanding that you fund them).”

5  YES  “Eliminates the so-called ‘moving tax' for homeowners 55 years and older who move to a new primary residence -- their property tax will not increase.”

6  YES  “Repeals the unnecessary and burdensome gas tax and DMV fee hikes from 2017 (if Prop. 6 doesn't pass, next year you'll pay 76.7 cents total tax for each gallon of gas).”

7  NO  “With Daylight Saving Time, Californians drive more safely, are outside more, and children on winter mornings don't have to walk to school in the dark; vote No on 7 to prohibit the State Legislature from eliminating this reality.”

8  NO  “Caps prices at kidney dialysis clinics, likely causing clinic closures and sending needy patients to the ER, where taxpayers often foot the bill.”

9 “REMOVED FROM THE BALLOT (While the People's ‘3 Californias' initiative qualified for the ballot, you can't vote on it since Prop. 9 was unconstitutionally yanked by the California Supreme Court.)”

10  NO  “Caps rents at all rental housing, establishes up to 539 new government rental boards that can add fees on top of rents, demotivates landlords from renting residential properties, and will reduce the number of rentals and new rental properties in California.”

11  YES  “Fixes a bad state law of the Democrat politicians on mandatory meal and rest breaks, instead allowing private emergency medical technicians and paramedics to respond to calls while on a break, just like firefighters and police.”

12  NO  “This invasive measure by animal ‘rights' activists would financially harm California families by increasing everyone's costs for meat and eggs, and by creating an expansive new bureaucracy threatening ranchers in and out of state.”

Also from SaveCalifornia.com:
“A principle to remember on local taxes, bonds, fees, and assessments:
”SaveCalifornia.com knows that big government often robs people of personal responsibility and saddles working families, property owners, and small business owners with greater financial burdens. It's all because big government refuses to investigate and slash its own waste. Because of the influence of government unions and bureaucracy, independent, tough audits are simply not seen. Therefore, we encourage you to vote NO on ANY AND ALL tax increases, tax extensions, bonds (which is borrowing money, and always more expensive than a direct tax because you must also pay back interest), fees, and assessments. It's pro-family to keep more of your hard-earned money, so it's pro-family to oppose wasteful government taking away more money from you and other Californians. Sneaky politicians like to take it incrementally, so you must consistently oppose even the smallest tax/bond/fee/assessment increases in order to inhibit the government from making you and your family poorer.”
