Now that Democrats control a ⅔ supermajority in both chambers of the California legislature, they theoretically have the power to roll back years of cuts to schools and services by raising taxes — but will they? We’ll talk to Robert Cruikshank of Calitics.com and Lenny Goldberg of the California Tax Reform Association about the policy and the politics of tax reform.
Also: Sonali Kolhatkar discusses what happens when Republican governors say they won’t implement Obamacare, and Berkeley celebrates 40 years of Kris Welch on KPFA’s airwaves with an official proclamation of Kris Welch Day!
