Full Text of Argument In Favor, Rebuttal

Summary of Arguments AGAINST Proposition 1C:
Vote "no" on Proposition 1C. Almost $3 billion in new government debt and big bureaucracy won't make California housing affordable. Proposition 1C gives your money to a select few chosen by bureaucrats then sticks every California family of four with $600 of debt and interest. Vote "no" on irresponsible debt.
