Rep. Lois Court's dim view of governing Colorado

The panel discussion was titled, "Ungovernable States: Prospects for Constitutional Reform in California and Colorado,” so we might have known what to expect.

Still, the statements from Colorado State Rep. Lois Court (who posed a stark choice between representative democracy and ballot initiatives; and objected to the concept of across the board budget cuts), gave us insight into why the belt-tightening of the Colorado state budget is decried by some Democrats.

We're apparently NOT PAYING ENOUGH TAXES.

What else are we to make of Court's remark [at 3:09 of the video above]: "So let's really think about what it is you sent us there for and what you want us to be providing for you with the tax dollars you send us, little as they are these days."
