"I know Colorado, fondly, as the only state with a Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR), a constitutional amendment requiring state legislators who want to hike spending or taxes to first ask citizens for approval. It was passed by voters in 1992, by citizens' initiative. Imagine that! Citizens in charge. In real life. In Colorado. Unsurprisingly, TABOR has long been No. 1 on Big Government's hit list; for politicians, lobbyists, university presidents and political insiders, it's the bane of their existence. Along with the citizen initiative process, from which it came. That's why Colorado's political establishment spent a million dollars to put Amendment 71 on next Tuesday's ballot. They aim to kill both TABOR and the citizen initiative." (11/01/16)
