-UPDATE- Podcast of the show now available.
The Colorado Car Tax – and the incipient taxpayer revolt building against it – was first brought to prominence (and gained my attention) by a series of articles on this site. Others have apparently picked up on the issue both in “street” protests and now in broadcast media.
From the promo for tonight’s Backbone Radio (host: former Senate President John Andrews):
At a time when politicians talk in trillions, why are Coloradans hopping mad over a $32 vehicle fee increase and the annoying $100 late penalty? What are the merits of the FASTER bill for highway funding, source of the uproar? How much impact will angry motorists have on next year’s legislature and the 2010 election?
Catch up with the surprise issue of summer 2009 when you tune in this evening, Thursday, August 20, at 7:00 pm for “Under the Dome,” my issue special on 710 KNUS in Denver, also streaming live at www.710knus.com.
“Under the Dome: Car Tax Backlash” is my conversation with former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore, Colorado gubernatorial candidates Scott McInnis & Josh Penry, Arapahoe County Clerk Nancy Doty, and tax-cut petition advocate Jeff Gross. Judicial reformer Matt Arnold joins me for the interviews. This is the latest edition of a citizens alert we’re now doing monthly for Colorado conservatives. Our website, BackboneAmerica.net, will have followup information and a podcast starting Friday. Thanks for listening! Don’t miss “Under the Dome: Car Tax Backlash,” tonight at 7:00.
