My father knew Howard Jarvis.
His premise was simple. Government will spend all of the money they can get (and probably more).
Only way to limit this, is to limit revenue. Hence Proposition 13, which has held up well.
Burton, on the other hand, wants higher revenue. Can't imagine a world without all the programs he loves.
I think Jarvis was right. Sadly Bush is breaking the federal budget, risking international currency rate and interest rate problems (crises?) instead of spending discipline.
