Donate Your Taxes Bill Passed in Arizona

Just when you think you've heard it all...Arizona just keeps popping up in the news..Oh please! I really want to donate more of my money so that you can cut more programs to the working poor?  Please let us vote these maroons out before it's too late!
Arizona seems to be making news left and right over the past week. Now comes a proposal that may have many voters scratching their heads.
The state legislature has decided to give Arizona residents the option to donate more of their income to the state each tax cycle.
H2001, which passed the Senate on April 19, would add an “I Didn’t Pay Enough Fund” to the list of voluntary contributions on the state’s individual income tax forms. The idea is that some residents may want to give more of their income to the state.
The bill, which was sponsored by Arizona state Republican Judy Burges, was sent to the governor’s desk for her signature or veto.
“What we’re doing is calling people’s bluff,” said Sen. Ron Gould, a Republican from Lake Havasu City.  “People that say they don’t want their taxes to reduce will take the tax reduction anyway and won’t donate it.”
