Peter Camejo on Budget & Economy

Reform Party nominee for Vice President; previously Candidate for CA Governor


Wealthiest should be taxed at the same rate as others

The average person in California is paying about 9.2% of the income in taxes. The wealthiest 1% pay 7.2%. If we just had the wealthiest 5% that receive all of the advantages of the great rise in the economy over the last 10 years, their income rose 113%. Your income rose 8%. Latinos actually declined 3%. If they were taxed at the same rate that you pay, we would now have a surplus in the budget.

Audit is needed for responsible government spending

We're 27th in education and we're number one in the nation in economy. I'm calling for a five-year audit. I want a five audit to find out how we had a $30 billion surplus turn into a $38 billion deficit. I think we don't know for sure. Some good things were done. More money put in to give teachers a higher pay. Some steps were made in taking care of our infrastructure. We don't want to go back on that. But it was done irresponsibly.
