    Doesn't California have some sort of property tax increase freeze? I vaguely remember something about if someone owns a house, the property taxes get locked in but when the house sells, the new owner pays out the nose.

    I believe that the lenders are including the property tax within the mortgage payment in California. From what heard from a buddy, the lenders want to raise the down payment of a home to 20%-25% instead of the usual 10%. I wouldn't be surprised if the closing cost goes up from 3% to 5%.

    I found this article that there is a ballot measure for voters in June that would restrict government's use of eminent domain for private purposes.

    Here is the article.

    Health care for the poor is fine and dandy and i think an honorable thing to do. I dont know if its the role of government to provide such healthcare but if they choose to do that then they have an obligcation to do it in a very cost effective manner. It is that that lack of cost effectiveness that has caused the budget problems. Throwing more money at it is not a solution.
