This is why I love Jon Caldara. This is a fun, low-budget, and effective explanation of Amendment 49. I endorse the measure, despite the facts that it shouldn’t be a constitutional matter and I’m tired of Republicans pretending that all of their problems stem from financial disparity. The problem with Colorado Republicans is not that the government funds union lobbying, but that Colorado Republicans often run on their worst ideas and flub their few good ones. Nevertheless, I think Amendment 49, which prevents government from diverting money from the paychecks of government employees to unions, is a good idea. As Jon’s sock puppets note, the measure in no way interferes with the ability of government employees to give money to whatever groups they like, only the government can’t “help” them do it.
