Opponents of Stop Overspending Afraid of Voters

Many opponents of TABOR laws, like the Stop Overspending ballot initiative in Nebraska, claim that it will starve necessary government programs.  If these programs are necessary, it should be easy to convince voters that they are necessary as well.  However, a lawsuit to strike the Nebraska Stop Overspending initiative from the ballot seems like a desperate attempt to prevent citizens from voting on spending limits.  It seems that that opponents of spending limits have no confidence that they can convince voters that their programs are so vital that they deserve increases at double the rate of inflation every year.  The same cannot be said of politicians and lobbyists.
