Read Measure AA Carefully
Original post made by Alameda Co. Voter on May 12, 2014
I thought Obamacare already fixed the problem of unaffordable health care and I understood it provides health insurance for those who could not otherwise get it. Why do we need to pay more sales taxes for something that we are already paying the federal and state governments hundreds of billions of dollars?
As for the other things AA will supposedly provide, why are the billions of dollars that property owners pay to Alameda county not enough? Not to mention the recent tax increases enacted by the CA state government. Alameda county cannot provide emergency services out of all that funding they already have available? If not, how is it being spent?
I believe this sales tax increase is unnecessary, and I hope you will consider it carefully before you vote.
