Vote No on Proposition CC on Your November 5 Ballot

Featured

TABOR was passed by tax-paying voters in 1992 and became part of the Colorado Constitution.  Its’ purpose is simple in that before lawmakers can raise your taxes, you get to vote yes or no, although spending increase by the inflation rate + population growth.  Any extra revenue collected beyond that should be refunded to taxpayers.  

If Proposition CC passes, you lose the right to vote on tax increases and lose any refunds due you.  Not just for a year or two but permanently.

TABOR keeps government honest and forces it to prioritize the budget and spending.

Don’t lose your rights and refunds!  

The TABOR Foundation & TABOR Committee urge you to Vote NO on Proposition CC

The TABOR Speakers Bureau is available to explain TABOR to your organization members and answer questions

Cooke: The case against Colorado’s Proposition CC

For those who aren’t familiar with our Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, also known as TABOR, it’s simple. TABOR promotes transparent, consensual and good, fair government. Ever since voters approved it in 1992, this constitutional amendment has been an indispensable voter check and balance on state government growth. TABOR provides reasonable limitations on revenue collection (population growth plus inflation) and general government debt.

If government wants to grow, all it has to do is ask voters. Coloradans are lucky to live in a state in which we get to decide on the size and scope of government.

First, there is no budget crisis.

Ari Armstrong Tweet About Proposition CC

Ari Armstrong@ariarmstrong
CO Prop. CC is a “net tax increase.”
It doesn’t increase tax *rates*, but it increases the overall amount of tax dollars that government keeps.
Here’s an idea: If you want government to have more of your money, just send it in.
No one’s stopping you.

Don’t lose your right to vote on tax increases, your TABOR refund, and no brakes to stop runaway state spending

Don’t lose your right to vote on tax increases, your TABOR refund, and no brakes to stop runaway state spending.
It’s your money.
If the state keeps it, your taxes have therefore been raised
So they are LYING when they claim “without raising taxes.”
Vote NO on Proposition CC.
