Petro Against Taxpayers?


In his effort to deflate GOP gubernatorial front-runner Ken Blackwell, Jim Petro has decided to go after Blackwell’s support of a taxpayer limitation measure. Specifically, Petro has charged that Colorado’s Taxpayer Bill of Rights hurt the state, and would produce similar effects in Ohio. Others disagree. There’s lots more on this and the Ohio political races at Right Angle Blog.

[Notes to self: 1) You are a registered voter in Ohio. 2) Petro is much more likely to increase your already-high tax burden than Blackwell.]
