Here’s more from the M.A.D. website:
A recent Rasmussen poll suggests that American parents understand that when government takes more from them, parents have less to spend caring for their children. Consider these findings regarding taxes, debt and spending:
* 66 percent of Americans believe the country is overtaxed.
* 69 percent of Americans do not want their taxes raised to pay off the national debt.
* 83 percent of Americans believe the budget spending deficit is due to elected officials’ unwillingness to cut spending rather than a reluctance to raise taxes.
In Colorado parents enjoy a fragile line of defense between their pocketbooks and government. Known as the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR), it keeps government from growing faster than the private sector. TABOR allows government to grow by the sum of rate of inflation plus population, and lawmakers must ask Colorado voters for approval to raise taxes. The beauty of TABOR is that it puts Colorado voters in charge. They get to decide how much government they want and how much they are willing to pay for it.
