A group of CA legislators want to mandate a 3% income tax to be imposed on any one without a retirement plan. So they can take the defined benefit scam of public employees and grant it to their voters I presume? This will impact oly those without a retirement plan = the poorest workers.

I'm certain Californians remember when the State of California mailed out IOUs instead of state income tax refund checks.

Does anyone believe that in 40 years the State will actually give people their money back? Plus of the early money with inflation it would worth what, 5 cents on the dollar?

In reality, it is just another 3% tax on every dollar any employee in California earns.

Wants to? It's been signed into law. California Deals with State Pension Crisis by Expanding it to Private Employees - Hit & Run : Reason.com

Another Ponzi Scheme. I hope it's found unconstitutional.

So no link, no quote of a story, no law being cited, not even a politician talking about. Pretty crappy OP imo.

The poor should not be taxed 3%. The poor should be taxed 10%, just as everyone else should be taxed 10% on everything they make that year.

I saw this on FOX news this AM and it was said Caly-for-ni is in debt to the tune of $3,000,000.00 (that's million folks) per resident in that Golden state. The owls and cats are financially better off than the citizens.

Those numbers are always so funny. 3 million per person - really? So CA is $90 trillion in debt and our country is $17 trillion in debt. Get a clue; these people that make up these numbers can't phathom that the state might actually collect $89 trillion over that same period of time the way things are today. They some how magically think the state stops collecting a single dollar so they can throw out a STUPID number to scare people.

Refresh my memory, haven't many members of the Republican party pissing and moaning about how the poor don't pay their fair share?

This is tax and spend. I'm all for tax and balance the budget, but this is a take and spend even more.
