Apparently, statehouse Democrats, along with the occasional useful Republican, strongly feel Colorado ranks too high. How else do you explain Senate Bill 228?
One of the leading arguments against SB 228 – including among the moderate sectors of the business community – has been the threat posed to a reliable stream of transportation funding. But a watcher makes the case that the real winning argument is simply to demonstrate the outrageous growth of government caused by repealing the 6 percent spending cap.
I say: Give me both arguments. Whatever the case, SB 228 is bad policy and a sure way to chip away at Colorado’s proud and hard-earned high ranking in economic freedom.
