Re “Gas prices up 26 cents compared to last year” (sacbee.com, Nov. 6): California is a beautiful state. But due to constantly increasing taxes, lower and middle class cannot afford to enjoy California. Residents on fixed income and workers find their income decreases. If you relate disposable income to freedom and quality of life, you loose by living in California. Republicans in Washington are trying to put more money in our pockets by cutting federal taxes. California Democrats, who need your money for the greater good, will see any federal tax decrease as another income source to which they are entitled.
