From today's Rocky Mountain News:
Republican Gov. Bill Owens this week unveiled his own proposed budget fixes that include tinkering with TABOR. Owens' spokesman, Dan Hopkins, said the governor would never approve of abolishing TABOR or significantly changing it. "The governor is a staunch defender of TABOR and believes it has served the state well," Hopkins said.
Served the state well, huh? TABOR has clearly been a boon for Colorado, except for that pesky massive budget deficit thing.
