"A Boon to the Rich"

"The Legislative Analyst's Office report does support Ben Franklin's adage in an important way. Proposition 13 didn't necessarily relieve Californians of paying for the services they demand from local government; but it did produce a change in who pays the price. In many respects, the burden has been shifted down the income scale, so that poorer taxpayers are shouldering more of these costs."

Michael Hiltzik in the Los Angeles Times discusses a new study of Proposition 13.
