Read this letter published in today’s Gazette (Colorado Springs) from John Leonard of Monument:
With liberals in charge, hold onto your wallets
Colorado taxpayers had better hold on to their wallets as the tax-and-spend liberals take over the state Legislature. Already, liberal organizations such the League of Women Voters, AARP and the Colorado Springs Economic Development Corporation have begun their assault on TABOR so taxes can be raised to have state taxpayers support their pet programs.
The Democrats controlling the Legislature are more than willing to support the move as long as Amendment 23 is not changed. That allows them to pay back the teachers’ unions for their political support and to pour more money into the public schools, which have become liberal indoctrination centers.
Taxpayers can no longer rely on our once conservative governor for support, as he has capitulated to the Democrats. Taxpayers, beware. Without TABOR, Colorado can become another California.
We need more letters like these in the major papers every day, joining forces with the voice of the center-right blogosphere, to help rescue Colorado’s financial future.
