Local Colorado Activists Question Democratic Candidates on Tax Issues

While attending a campaign event for Democratic Gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper along with a few local activists, I became curious about whether the current Mayor was planning to lower our taxes if he was elected to be Colorado’s governor.  After spending about 10 minutes talking about the importance of the economy and helping families who are struggling financially, I thought it was a fair question to ask. So what was the Mayor’s response? To say that we are “…about as low as we can go with taxes.”

Check out the story and watch a video of the Mayor’s response on the new up and coming site Who Said, You Said.

After hearing the Mayor’s response, I perused the local Colorado Spending Transparency site, a project of the Independence Institute, where I (quickly) found a story exposing the fact that over $9 million of the Colorado State budget was spent on a combination of bankcard fees, interest on late payments and a host of other miscellaneous fees and fines. It doesn’t stop there either. Another story shows us that since the beginning of July of this year, $764,024.72 has been spent on advertising for the state. Gee, I wonder what it is they are advertising? Maybe it’s how well they are spending our money? Perhaps Hickenlooper should put an additional clause on his statement reading “…so long as we continue down the path of wasting a good portion of the money that is already coming in…”
