In 2005 the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) released a video to help defeat proposed measures like Colorado’s Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) in other states. Voters in several states are considering such measures in 2006, including Maine, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, and Oregon. The CBPP video’s message is that TABOR devastates the economy and the ability of government to fund schools, roads and health care. By understanding the truth, however, viewers will note that they have nothing to fear from passing their own TABOR. Unfortunately, they may not recognize the CBPP video for the highly misleading propaganda piece that it is.
