on Measure 67
We wouldn't be in this (constant) predicament if we had a legislature that legislated and didn't refer every tax measure to the voters!!! The word "tax" is anathema to most Americans so why would they ever vote to raise theirs? Taxation through representation was what our forefathers fought for, not taxation by popular vote. I've never lived in a state that left all the work up to the voting public - it's inane!
