Just a reminder for those in Los Angeles to vote NO on proposition S.

------------------------------------------
Proposition S would restore an illegal tax hike the courts threw out.

In March 2003, City Hall increased your phone tax illegally, by failing to get voters' approval. In July 2005, the Superior Court threw out the illegal tax hike. City Hall filed an appeal -- but continued to collect the tax, despite the ruling. In May 2007, the Court of Appeal affirmed the Superior Court's ruling: the tax hike was illegal.

Now City Hall wants to restore the illegal tax hike. To trick you into thinking Proposition S is a tax cut, proponents say it would reduce the tax rate from 10% to 9%. Don't fall for it. If you vote "no," you won't have to pay the tax at all, because the courts threw it out. If you vote "yes," the tax comes back, and you'll pay 9%. "No" means "no tax."

Make sure you tell everyone you know that S and prop 93 are complete scams and to vote "NO" on them.

I've been talking to friends who aren't very politically involved and they have no idea about anything and they were going to vote yes on both of these.

Make sure you tell everyone you know or can think of.

Just get a non LA phone number and it won't even matter.
