    Keeping money they otherwise would have had to return is a tax increase by any definition. If Coloradoans are dumb enough to pass this these people will steal as much money from us as possible. The reason we have such a good economy is because the TABOR Amendment has hamstringed the governments ability to steal from business' and individuals. If it's repealed, well just look at California and that will be our future. What they're trying to do is increase private property confiscation. That's all taxes are.
