Referendum C and D

Something that keeps getting lost in the noise is the fact that there is no such thing as a "rebate" to lose because of Ref C and D. TABOR doesn't provide rebates. TABOR is just a massive income redistribution scheme, taking money from some taxpayers and giving it back to others.

And for everybody out there who keeps spouting the nonsensical "It's my money, I can spend it better than the government," answer me this. When was the last time you stopped by your local police or fire department and paid a police officer's or a firefighter's salary directly? When did you arrange for a contractor to come out and fill those potholes in your street? When did you pay your local school district's expenses for administering CSAP tests and complying with federal mandates? When did you host a convicted criminal in your basement lockup? Until you do any of those things, just shut the hell up...
