Prop. 103 and Roxani Gillespie

Benjamin Zycher asks why the voters were so foolish as to vote for Prop. 103 (Op-Ed. Aug. 25). Reading his article was enough to remind me. The combination of politics and insurance (two real sleeper topics) made it pretty hard for this college graduate to wade through his writing. How can he expect voters who don’t read about such things to learn enough to vote intelligently?

Our legislators, in their wisdom, have abandoned their duties to this ridiculous proposition system. The purpose of a representative government is to free Joe Voter from hours poring over texts of laws trying to figure out which tangle of legalese is best.
