Proposition 13: A Watershed Moment Bridging FDR and Reagan

John Fund
2009 California Journal of Politics and Policy  
Opponents of Prop. 13 make a political miscalculation as serious as that which conservatives did with Social Security. For 30 years, they have tried to dismantle Prop. 13, or modify it. Their efforts are as doomed as the efforts to change Social Security, because Prop. 13 is considered part of the basic social fabric of California. Today, 70% of Californians support it. Some may not like those numbers, but they should understand them rather than fight them.
