It's interesting how stark the difference between the politicians and the public is here. It seems a political opportunity in that light.

    “the most dangerous and harmful initiative that has ever been submitted,”

    “bomb in the heart of our society and our economy.”

I'd love to hear the reasoning behind such strong positions. There seems to be a conviction that the public would waste this resource when compared to government provided services. That view is problematic for both liberals and libertarians in different ways.
