We Told You This Would Happen - Pictures from the Press Conference on the 2001 Libertarian Tax Plan

Indiana's elected officials were either not prescient, or ignored the upcoming tax and spend disaster currently effecting our state.
Here's a photograph of the press conference held to announce the plan at the old Indianapolis Press Club:

Here's a picture of media listening to the press conference:
I don't ever like being able to say "I told you so", because this means that the prediction of a bad outcome has happened, but "I told you so" in December of 2001.
