In response to the initiative filed today that would establish a new one-cent sales tax increase (once the temporary one-cent tax expires), Steve Voeller, president of the Arizona Free Enterprise Club released the following statement:

“This initiative is the most egregious spending initiative in the history of spending initiatives.  Not only does it earmark funds in perpetuity for government spending, it prohibits the legislature from decreasing spending elsewhere.  Talk about tying the hands of the legislature.  They should have included a provision to require Santa Claus to annually deliver the bags and bags of cash that will be required to keep the rest of government afloat.”
