High taxes harm the ability of investors to create jobs—mostly for minority citizens. Government schools in California have been the biggest reason for the lack of economic success for people of color. Environmental policies have killed job opportunities for people of color, while not helping the environment. The Newsom-mandated lockdown, closing of businesses and social disorder (crime wave) has disproportionally hard the minority community.
So, it is not a surprise the Newsom/Democrat energy policies—causing the highest utility costs in the nation, have harmed minority communities the most.
“Vehicle transportation is the survival mechanism for low-income people. If you try to increase the cost of automobiles and the costs of fuel, you hurt low-income people. Some of the taxes and climate policy costs hidden in the all-in posted price of fuel at the pump are federal tax, excise tax, state tax, local sales tax, cap and trade program compliance costs, low-carbon fuel standard program compliance costs, and renewable fuels standard program compliance costs. The wealthy and middle-income folks may tolerate these non-transparent costs. Those less fortunate financially, constantly need to make decisions with their limited income to pay for rent, utilities, food, schooling for their kids, or gas for their vehicle.
The Governor is proud of California, through its dysfunctional energy policies imports more electricity than any other state– currently at 32 percent from the Northwest and Southwest, and being the only state in contiguous America that imports most of its crude oil energy from foreign countries, And dysfunctionally HOPES that other states will continue to be able to generate enough power to meet the demands of the state.
I will not be subtle—the Newsom/Democrat energy policy is openly biased. He says we can not get back to normal until we have “equality”. His racists policies of ending education, losing jobs, cost of energy, makes California the bias capitol of the United States.
