    • This poorly drafted measure is nine pages of fine print, but only four sentences describe what types of programs the funds will support. Taxpayers need to know exactly how their money will be spent and that it won’t be wasted.
    • Only 5% of tax revenue is actually dedicated toward disease detection, prevention, treatment and control. The rest goes to other government programs.
