We all want to help those who want to stop smoking, but
Prop 56 is not what it appears to be.
Prop 56 is a $1.4 billion “tax hike grab” by insurance companies and other wealthy special interests to dramatically increase their profits by shortchanging schools and ignoring other pressing problems.
Facing California Families
We have many pressing problems in California, like fully funding our schools, repairing roads, solving the drought and fighting violent crime. If we are going to raise taxes, we should be spending this new tax revenue on these problems.
Not one penny of the new tax money from
Prop 56 will go to improving our kids’ schools.
