Step Aside Drummond: Let's Vote on the Budget

Voters in every jurisdiction should vote every year on one simple, multiple-choice question: How much of a budget increase, if any, should the city/province/federal government be permitted next year? The choice should range from negative to positive. For example, the ballot choice would go as low as minus five per cent but only as high as the rate of inflation.
