Sen. Jim Barnett, R-Emporia, who is running for governor, recently told a small group of Republicans in Olathe that no “true Republican” can oppose the proposed Taxpayer Bill of Rights. But Barnett’s colleague Senate President Steve Morris, R-Hugoton, has called TABOR “bad public policy” and “a disaster looking for a place to happen.” And the concerns of many in the GOP-heavy business community, as well as in social services and higher education, helped persuade TABOR proponent House Speaker Doug Mays, R-Topeka, not to pursue a vote on the issue this legislative session. Is Barnett really suggesting that all those opposed to TABOR need to find another party?
