Why #TABOR Matters On September 2

The ballot language of Prop CC begins by claiming “Without increasing taxes…”
If it passes, that means you lose your TABOR tax refund permanently.
That is an increase in taxes.

North Carolina Republicans Vote To Follow The Lead Of Democrat-Run Colorado, And That’s Welcome News For Many Tar Heel Taxpayers

Colorado Governor Jared Polis (D) and the leaders of the Colorado Legislature are progressives from Boulder who have many ideas for higher taxes and new spending. Much to their chagrin, Colorado’s Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights thwarts their plans to raise state tax rates and spending levels.

Referendum C hurt TABOR; Prop CC will do more harm

They lied to us in 2005, and they are doubling down on this lie in 2019. Colorado voters were sold a bill of goods with Referendum C in 2005, and it is of the utmost importance that we aren’t fooled again with Proposition CC in 2019.

Proponents of Referendum C originally claimed that their measure was “temporary.” The measure was supposed to offer a five-year reprieve from the constitutional limitations created by the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR), allowing some fiscal flexibility for Colorado lawmakers to invest heavily in education and transportation.

Why #TABOR Matters On August 27

Building a Better Colorado is another special interest group organized to repeal TABOR.
BBC’s past successes: 1) requiring ballot initiatives to get signatures from throughout the state; 2) instituting a statewide presidential primary (co-opts the work of political parties); 3) allow unaffiliated voters to participate in a Democrat or Republican party primary election – without declaring a party affiliation.

Why #TABOR Matters on August 21

TABOR limits the growth of government (at all levels) by adding the rate of inflation and population growth to the baseline of the previous year’s budget. Taxpayers are guaranteed the right to vote on all tax increases – and receive a refund of any extra tax monies collected over the allowed amount. Unless they vote to allow the government to keep the extra money for a specific purpose. Proposition CC would let government always keep any extra tax money – without any further votes of the people.
