On November 2nd, we have a chance to do what so many of us have been dreaming about. Follow the money, we've been told, well, that's what Proposition 24, the Tax Fairness Act is about. Though its opponents try to present it as a bad deal for small business and employees, in fact, it has nothing to do with small businesses.
