Alaska and Texas tax oil as it comes out of the ground and use that money to pay for state government, schools, colleges, etc. Alaska even sends everyone in the state a check with that oil money.
But in California the state refuses to tax oil companies that take our oil out of the ground to sell back to us. Instead it raises college tuition by a third.
California also doesn’t ask its wealthy residents to pitch in and help run the state. Instead it makes it much more difficult for children who are not born to wealthy families to get a university education.
This is the choice California makes when it allows a 2/3 rule that lets a minority block the state from raising the revenue it needs to run the government.
