Libertarian Lunch: Frank Atwood & Blake Huber – Approval Voting

The presentation is an educational one.  TIF is much smoke and (funhouse-like) mirrors, masking a fraught scheme teeming with corporate welfare, TABOR evasion, other constitutional violations, Chicago-style local corruption, and generations-long suspension of voter control over taxes and spending.  But once explained, it’s easy to understand what it does, who it does it to, and why it is so widely popular with Colorado municipalities and corporate welfare queens.
