Colorado Speaker of the House Andrew Romanoff praised the [National Education Association]â€™s state chapter as one of the â€œmost aggressive and successfulâ€ groups assisting Democrats in their takeover Coloradoâ€™s Statehouse and governorâ€™s mansion. State Treasurer Cary Kennedy (no relation to RFK Jr.) said that Democrats would win a ballot initiative to â€œdrive a stake in the heartâ€ of the stateâ€™s Taxpayers Bill of Rights [TABOR]–a conservative cost-cutting measure.
Yes, the Democrats behind Amendment 59 – Andrew Romanoff and Cary Kennedy – want to stick it to the taxpayer in the service of their liberal interest group masters (read: Colorado Education Association). While anyone who has been paying attention understands Romanoff’s and Kennedy’s basic intentions, it is somewhat surprising to see their unguarded opinions reported in black and white.
