GOP & Prentice Concerned Over Bloated Budget

Despite constraints placed on the state budget by TABOR, Colorado repubs are showing growing concern over a nearly 5% increase in the upcoming budget. As the Independence Institute’s Paul Prentice says to Watchdog,

Every dollar spent by the State of Colorado must first come from the private sector in one form or another. TABOR minimizes the amount the State can take, thus maximizing the amount left to the general public…One reason the Colorado State economy is growing faster than the national average, is that State spending is growing below the national average due to TABOR.

It’s a relief that more and more people recognize that we can thank TABOR for our booming economy, and not Hickenlooper.
