1F-passes; 1A-1E fails

In one of those rare moments where I agree fully with the California electorate, propositions 1A-1E—which offer diffuse tax increase to cover California's budget shortfall—have been defeated; and 1F—which blocks pay raises of elected officials during deficit years—has passed.

The voters, what few of them showed up, have spoken. Hopefully this generalizes to the rest of the country regarding voter attitudes toward uncontrolled government spending.
