California’s modern-day progressive Democrats keep crowing about the huge success they’ve had thanks to Prop. 30’s tax increases and other “reforms,” and now are championing the Jerry Brown model as a blueprint for the nation. Be afraid.

It’s bad enough, writes Steven Greenhut, that other states now have to deal with California residents, who are fleeing the Golden State’s success-punishing tax and regulatory regimen, but now, apparently, they are going to have to deal with California’s bad ideas as well, promoted through smug lectures from California’s liberal politicians.
