The Washington DC based Tax Foundation called me the other day for a chat about Governor Hickenlooper’s fantastic record on passing tax and debt increases here in Colorado. Whether it was for light rail, schools, or jails, Hick has the magic touc…

It's been a whole week since the voters of Colorado told state Senator Rollie Heath (D-Boulder) and his tax hike team of liberal legislators to "occupy this," so we figured it was a good time to take a look back at the forces that helped kill the proposed $3 Billion tax hike known as Prop 103. While opponents of the

Remember Ref C? Jane Norton does. Bob Beauprez does. What about Ref A? John Salazar thanks his lucky stars for the ballot initiative — he never would have been elected without his opponent's support of it. In fact, 2004's Ref A became a defining issue for races on the West Slope for three election cycles straight. All of this is

The election results hadn't even been certified and already liberal activists were ripping Governor Chickenlooper Hickenlooper a new one, furious over his refusal to back their $3 Billion tax hike. Rollie Heath, the main backer of the initiative that went down in flames, was equally upset, but instead turned his fire on the voters of Colorado. The anger at the

In a stinging defeat for teachers' unions, Colorado's liberal political network, and a brazen group of Democrat legislators who dared to ask for higher taxes in a record-breaking recession, Proposition 103 was soundly rejected by the voters tonight, losing statewide by almost 30% with almost half of the ballots in. Now we guess we know why Governor John Chickenlooper Hickenlooper

Did you get a thank note from the Denver Zoo for your donation? You should have because Colorado taxpayers, and likely taxpayers from across the country,”donated” above and beyond the amount that the seven county, Denver Metro area taxpayers approved with their yes vote to fund the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).
In 2008, the Governor’s [...]

We said last week that there was one way and one way only for the proposed $3 Billion tax increase known as Prop 103 to pass and that was conservative voter apathy. Luckily, GOP voters have turned out in far larger numbers than Democrats, which is not welcome news for Rollie Heath and his Tax Hike Team of liberal legislators.

People who write political emails are aware that often times they aren't opened or if they are, people merely scan them, rather than reading them like they would a message from a friend or co-worker. Knowing that, it seems rather odd for Sal Pace's (D-Urination) Congressional campaign to blast out an email to his list with the subject: "Tell Tipton
