So this is what it feels like to see the arbitrary power of the state in desperation. The State of California is increasing the amount it takes out of payroll withholding, now. I wasn't consulted, and if it wasn't for an email I got this morning I wouldn't have known about it.
It's not a tax increase, it's a forced interest free loan out of my cash flow. Think of Wimpy asking for money to pay for a cheeseburger for which he will gladly repay me on Tuesday. (Does anybody remember that metaphor any longer?). Except we can't say no.
This is outrageous. And they're going to get away with it.
