As we reported this morning, Democrats from the Fiscal Policy Institute attempted to hijack Coloradans’ wallets via a wholesale repeal of TABOR, the taxpayer bill of rights, which requires a vote of the people in order to raise taxes. In short, it’s the one thing standing between Democrats and Colorado turning into California.
For those not interested in a terrible quality of life (minus the ocean), there’s great news.
Today, the title board denied these crazy liberals their pocket robbing. Apparently, repealing TABOR isn’t so easy. Simply repealing the amendment in the state constitution is not possible via ballot initiative (or any other process with which we are familiar) because it violates the requirement that ballot initiatives be single subject. If lefties want to repeal TABOR, they will have to do so the same way you’d eat any elephant – one piece at a time.
Sucks to be them.
For the rest of us, it’s a huge win. For now. Buckle up, PeakNation™, this isn’t the first assault on TABOR to gain greater access to your cash.
