Presidential Debate Style Analysis President
Obama and Governor Romney meet for the second debate
last night. What have the two candidates learned from the first
debate - Romney was roundly seen as "the winner," coming across as
more confident and comfortable - and what can viewers or listeners
learn from it? We'll talk about it with Sacramento State's Director
of Debate Kristen Tudor.
Proposition 30 Governor Jerry Brown kicked
off a tour of California's state universities Tuesday to drum up
last-minute support of his initiative to increase taxes on sales
and incomes. Proposition 30 would boost income to schools
by raising the state's sales tax ¼ cent for four years and
increasing income taxes on people making more than $250,000
annually for seven years. We'll speak with Hope Richarson, a policy analyst from
the California Budget Project, about the financial impact
Proposition 30 will have , and what will happen to education if it
fails. We'll also speak with Capital Public Radio's Capitol
Bureau Chief Ben Adler about Brown's final push to pass Proposition
30. Insight will be focusing on one of California's 11 ballot
measures each day as the election approaches. Tune in
Thursday for analysis of Proposition 31, which would change the
state's legislative budget cycle.
