Majority Rules and Irony

Governor Napolitano has come out against Prop 105, the "Majority Rules" initiative. She says that it puts the people who choose not to vote in power and effectively halts all tax increases. That was probably the idea after seeing so many different incremental tax increases over the past few years.

The Ironic part (irony in this case defined as "intention or attitude opposite to that which is actually or ostensibly stated") is that the Governor claims that she doesn't know of anyone who has proposed a big tax increase. As Espresso Pundit points out, the Governor has her own $42 billion dollar sales tax increase on the ballot this time around.

Looks like she may have gotten it in just under the wire. If the new law passes, she would have actually had to work with the legislature to get increased funding for transportation.
