"45% fiscally irresponsible yahoos" is actually the " coalition of public-employee unions".
If I could count all the times I was told that if we don't pass this measure all the jobs in our county will dry up because the state is our largest employer I'd be richer than Bill Gates.
How they can never get a clue that if everyone is sucking the gov't teat, then no one is actually producing taxable wealth is beyond me.
Oh, I remember, we'll pass a sales tax too and the tourists to pay all the taxes.
I was so relieved this failed, I was convinced by the media it was passing.

The old hotel tax trick. Go ahead cities, pass those hotel taxes, for they only affect all those foreigners (out-of-towners). Then when I want to travel, I hit all those hotel taxes other cities passed even though I only passed that "benign" hotel tax in my city. Sucker!
