13. In California, the base amount after taxes is about $215k

Assuming no deductions.

But the federal income in that bracket is 35%. California is 11.6%.

Depending on where you live in California, that might not go as far as one thinks given housing prices. Live anywhere near the cities, and a 2 bedroom apartment will run you $3k-$5k a month.

I voted yes, then I started calculating.

Just something to keep in mind when discussing these things.

Given just how disparate living costs are in different areas, our flat rate taxation system may not make as much sense as it used to. Believe me, in many places, salaries aren't keeping up with the COL.
