In an exclusive podcast interview with Heartland Senior Fellow James M. Taylor (click on the player above), California Assemblyman Dan Logue, author of Proposition 23, on the ballot November 2, compares the state’s economy to “A Weekend at Bernie’s.”
“I don’t know if you remember the movie ‘A Weekend at Bernie’s,’ ” Logue says, describing the 1989 flick where Jonathan Silverman and Andrew McCarthy try to pretend their murdered boss is really alive, “driving around town, lifting his arms up, that sort of thing.”The California economy is like that, Logue says, with taxpayers and existing businesses being forced to prop up “green” firms that would not be able to compete without subsidies.
Logue says the state’s economy and its environment need Prop 23, which would temporarily suspend the jobs-killing, environmentally unnecessary “Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006.”
