Republicans threaten Jerry Brown over tax deductions

In his letter to Brown, the eight-term congressman castigated the governor for the state’s high taxes. “I recognize the role of the state and local tax deduction to reduce the tax burden on many Californians,” Issa wrote, “but let’s be clear: it has only become of such importance as a direct result of the tremendous weight that your misguided policies have put on California taxpayers.” In particular, Issa cited the state’s new gas tax law that Brown recently signed. “In terms of truly ‘horrible ideas’ on tax policy, I have to say, this one takes the cake.”
