It's not TABOR, it's WUHT-PAH

We warned you that TABOR, a year and a half in the making, would be reappearing soon in a new guise, after a face lift, fingerprint removal, and some other cosmetic surgery.

Oh, new name, too.

Wednesday, State Sen. Glenn Grothman, R-West Bend, said it will be called -- TA-DA! -- the Wisconsin Taxpayer Protection Amendment."

Pretty inspired stuff. WUHT-PAH doesn't resonate quite as well as TABOR, but I'm sure we'll get used to it.

State Sen. Judy Robson, D-Beloit, wasn't impressed. “If it walks like TABOR and talks like TABOR, it’s TABOR," Robson said.

“TABOR is a proven failure,” Robson said. “Colorado sent up TABOR as a trial balloon and it came crashing down like the Hindenburg. Democrats have offered responsible ways to bring down property taxes. TABOR is an abdication of responsibility.”
