The RGA released apparent tracker footage of former federal prosecutor Chris Mattei (D) on Monday showing him “coming out in favor of multiple tax and fee hikes, calling for ‘creative revenue solutions’ with the state sales tax, confirming he’s ‘in favor of tolls,’ and even proposing ‘a robot tax’ from California.”

Mattei, on the robot tax: “The idea is that, for every job that is displaced as a result of automation or a robot, is, the employer has to continue to pay roll tax on that person as if they’re still employed, and that payroll tax then gets put towards a retraining fund so that folks whose jobs are misplaced there’s funding available to make sure they get retraining in an area that’s growing where their job’s available.” (release)
