Hillman: State government hasn’t earned our trust; vote NO on Prop CC
In 2005, lawmakers asked for a limited, 5-year timeout from the TABOR limit and a permanent change to allow spending to rebound after a recession. They promised to spend the money on education and health care.
But after that measure passed, spending on education and health care actually grew less than everything else in the budget.
Prop CC is far worse because it’s not merely a 5-year timeout. It’s forever.
