No on 1033 at 10:33

Elected officials rarely like to overturn initiatives or referendums – there’s a perception that if you counter the voters, you’ll get bounced out of offic the next time around. Well, guess what? In Colorado, the effects of a citizen-approved bill almost exactly like Tim Eyman’s Initiative 1033 were so godawful that the state legislature overturned it.

Yes, that’s right, this thing is so bad that brought together a divided house to overturn a vote by the public. That is really bad! And there’s no reason we have to get to that point – just vote No on 1033!

And come to Trick or Vote!

    Thanks for the post. We’ve been blogging about 1033, too. Our latest looks at the cuts made to education programs this year, and how 1033 will set them in stone. Here’s the series: I-1033: Eyman’s Permanent Recession: http://daily.sightline.org/daily_score/series/i-1033-eymans-permanent-recession
