By Jessica Peck Corry (Jessica@JessicaCorry.com) Milton Friedman, winner of the Nobel Price in economics, has denounced Refs C & D for what they are--a massive tax increase that won't help bring accountability to our ever-growing government.
According to aGreeley Tribune article that ran on September 14th, Friedman said the following: "I strongly urge the voters of Colorado to reject Referendum C, or any action that would suspend Colorado's Taxpayers Bill of Rights. I strongly favor the continued and uninterrupted use of TABOR, including it's so called ratchet mechanism. The ratchet is one of the best features of TABOR. It is the only thing that will reduce out-of-control government spending."
