No Blank Check

October 16, 2003

Weren't you listening to what the voters said last week? Sacramento is broken, and we don't want to fix it with bandages made out of our dollar bills (and taken from our wallets). Getting rid of the two-thirds vote requirement to raise taxes and pass a budget, as advocated in your Oct. 12 editorial "Primed for Fiscal Overhaul," is just wrong. That would be nothing more than handing our elected officials a blank check to raise taxes. In March we'll be voting on that "Blank Check Initiative" that would eliminate that two-thirds protection, and I recommend to your readers that they vote no.
