I keep hearing from the past CA governor and the current CA governor that CA has an affordability problem or is in an affordability crisis. Now I am not as smart as the rest of you on this post, so would someone please explain to me how raising existing taxes and / or adding new taxes helps the affordability issue?

FWIW as I see things,... given "demand" > "supply"

seems politicians and the bureaucracy are encouraging more taxes which helps the affordability issue (for politicians and the bureaucracy) but ordinary people out of the loop (i.e. individuals not employed by the "state" or "local" municipality) are being asked to pay the cleanup bill caused mismanagement by politicians and the bureaucracy

basically CA has a current problem of insolvency and "moral" bankruptcy, which inevitability is going to lead to CA going "financially" bankrupt
