Here’s an interesting concession. Jon Coupal, president of the virulently anti-tax Howard Jarvis Taxpayers’ Association, just gave this much. He said Proposition had two goals, the first was to provide reason and predictability to property taxes. This he says, was a success. The other goal was to limit the future growth of government. This, he says, has been a failure. I wonder if he attributes this failure to flaws in Proposition 13’s fundamental design, or simply it’s scope.
