    As I’m watching the numbers roll in tonight from Colorado’s primary elections, I just had to tell you what the news might not pick up on, even if they noticed it. The big winner in tonight’s Republican Primary is our Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights. You might recall last year several weak-kneed Republicans in the state

    The Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights is universally despised, neigh, deplored by every tax-happy progressive around the country.

Then please join us on Monday, April 23, in Colorado Springs for our first stop

    by Jon Caldara The Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights does NOT limit tax and spending.

    Two Decades of Colorado’s Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR)0

    • May 23, 2016

    Over two decades have passed since Colorado voters adopted The Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights in 1992. TABOR allows government spending to grow each year at the rate of inflation-plus-population. Government can increase faster whenever voters consent. Likewise, tax rates can be increased whenever voters consent. This Issue Paper analyzes TABOR’s effect on state government spending and taxes by examining three decades: The 1983-92 pre-TABOR decade; the first decade of TABOR, 1993-2002; and the second decade, 2003-12. The final decade included the largest tax increase in Colorado history, enacted as Referendum C in 2005. Decade-2 was also marked by increasing efforts to evade TABOR by defining nearly 60% of the state budget as “exempt” from TABOR.
