Sure the kicker feels nice in the moment, but I'm wishing that our state had that money back to use right now. I'd be willing to bet that very few Oregonians still have the moeny from their last kicker, but our state could have if they'd had more to put into our rainy day fund. If it meant that we wouldn't be laying off our teachers, that we would be putting more money into earthquake/tsunami preparedness, that our state representatives and governor could spend their time on other important issues rather than fighting over the budget--they I would be more than happy to vote for a repeal of the kicker. Get two versions on the ballot, one that repeals and one that modifies. See which one passes.
