Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not too surprising though, one would think. People might be in favour of budget cuts in the abstract, but there likely wouldn't be too many takers if you're asked to vote away a program you're personally benefiting from. Good news either way, though!

In this case it was not surprising, though the Swiss did vote for VAT at the time or other tax increases, etc. So, you never know.
