    whole Colorado Springs area cursed the whole state. What was worse was that tax revenues couldn't be raised. During the downturn, revenues decreased. Well, even though rates were the same as in good times that saw sufficient funds, when the state needed to increase rates to maintain funding levels, the TABOR (which stands for TAx payer Bill Of Rights) amendment prevented the government from raising funds without a statewide vote. Bruce's proud plan was to shrink government in the best traditions of drowning it in the bathtub. Stupid, Stupid bill. And just like California, we can't get rid of a bad Amendment which is crippling the government of the state.
