A Bill of Goods for Taxpayers

This morning's Stateside Dispatch takes an in-depth look at the arbitrary spending caps being considered by legislators and advanced by signature gatherers all over the country. These caps are -- surprise, surprise -- part of a well-coordinated strategy by far-right ideological interests and not -- as they claim -- home-grown ideas. They're also basically guaranteed to result in massive problems for states that adopt them. The Dispatch explains what's wrong with the idea, the truth behind the rhetoric, and a summary of the action state-by-state so you can get involved in the fight in your neck of the woods.
