The Reiner Initiative

John Myers reports here that Rob Reiner and friends have gathered 1 million signatures for their subsidized preschool initiative, enough to qualify it for the June 2006 ballot. Reiner wants to pay for his program with the same upper-income tax that legislators want to use to pay for higher K-12 spending and Phil Angelides wants to use to balance the budget, i.e. pay for health, education and welfare that the state is already providing with money it does not have. You can't spend this money on preschool and also spend it to increase K-12 spending or balance the budget. But I don't expect anyone on the left to acknowledge that reality in the campaign ahead.
