California Can Thank Google For Budget Windfall
(AP) SACRAMENTO Someday, this era may simply be known as The Google Years.
California, whose budget revenue slides up and down like a yo-yo with changes in capital gains and stock options, is once again counting on outsized income tax filings from a handful of tech executives to help balance its budget. For this wave, California can largely thank Google Inc.
After cashing in more than 9 million shares valued at $3.7 billion last year, 16 Google insiders will owe the Golden State as much as $380 million in taxes -- enough to cover the salaries of more than 3,000 state workers. - And countless other employees in Silicon Valley,

Default Instead of Pleading.. alternative approach

As a humble suggestion : Why not pursue an offensive approach ?

Let us show in approx numbers how many Million / Billions of $$$ immigratants can influence the system, and how they can take the money out to put it elsewehre to grow companies/talents..

We always get compared with a grapes picker, let us face facts, we generate so much income for state, savings in banks, investment in property, invest in new seed companies and grow corporate profits, pay huge taxes, and exercising options, means - millions and billions to govt via state taxes, and capital gains. - Who benefits ? The GOVT. When we talk $$$ we make sense to them. If we whine on how the system should be fair and CIR, or SKIL, this will fall in deaf ears. Afterall in US, $ talks.

Look at @ Apple, steve jobs is almost getting aways with all the back , the reason the financial muscle :-( !
