All Measure E Supporters also Support Michelle Rhee

For an unknown reason supporters of the salary tax have linked it to Michelle Rhee. Nice try. I could also say that if you support the salary tax you are contributing to global warming and the extinction of the California condor. If you support the salary tax you are obviously in favor of increasing the mosquito population and doing away with yellow fever shots. Those things go together and make as much sense as the moronic supporters who say that we must vote yes on E in order to protect our schools from Michelle Rhee. Really? Is she in Pleasanton? Will a No on E vote grant her employment here?
When you have no valid argument you dredge up nonsense to support your point. If supporters want to grant raises to teachers that's fine. Use your money, not mine.
It is not possible to separate the exact dollars in the tax from those dollars that pay the raises. Will you color the bills pink to be able to say that those pink dollar bills cannot be issued to teachers for raises?
Fact: parcel tax is expected to raise about 2 million a year.
Fact: S & C raises will eat up MOST of that in year one and MORE THAN THAT in year two. If you want to preserve any programs the S & C raises must be frozen.
Without a freeze on S & C for the duration of the parcel tax everyone in our household will vote no on the salary tax.
