National Taxpayers Union Not A Serious Think Tank

Any think tank that can recommend that Colorado voters give the thumbs up to Propositions 60, 61, and 101, as the National Taxpayers Union does in its voting guide this year, is not a serious think tank of people with any clue about public finance. The organization also opposes every single local government mill levy or bond issue in the state.

In the view of this organization, spending money on government services, no matter what the benefit or need, is always a bad thing. It believes in "starve the beast" even if you're riding it.
