California started the nationwide tax revolt with Proposition 13 back in 1978. It worked so well at cutting government that the pendulum may be swinging back, with 95 percent telling one pollster that state budget's a problem and 64 percent telling another survey they'd be willing to raise taxes. We hear they're likely to get that chance, perhaps even more of a chance than they want. Also, government budget cuts and all those fallen trees. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, another surprise for Republicans: Newt Gingrich.
