Do Colorado liberals have secret plan for tax hikes?
Gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo and a mysterious advertiser on the radio are warning that a secretive group of Colorado liberals and special interest groups including unions and government contractors are planning to push tax increases after the election. Colorado Jobs Alliance, a registered 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organization has published its report on the Colorado Reform Roundtable's "Secret tax hike" and Tancredo says he will stop the tax hike in its tracks.
Colorado Reform Roundtable, according to Tancredo, is ". . .comprised of various liberal interest groups who have backed dozens of other tax hikes in recent years, has become a focus in the final weeks of the campaign as they banter in secret about a new multi-billion dollar sales tax to be dropped after the election."
These "Conveners" of the Colorado Roundtable certainly have a long history of promoting higher taxes: Bell Policy Center, SEIU, Colorado Education Assn. and Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce.
In a news release, the Tancredo campaign said:
Last week Steamboat Springs Pilot that he would back a tax hike as Governor. Hick also supports the repeal of the Senior and the continuation of 's car tax.told the
Said Tancredo, "When I'm governor, I will take the Colorado Reform Roundtable and all of the other liberal interest groups looking for higher taxes to the woodshed. The fact is, this is a front group for John Hickenlooper's tax hiking proclivities. Just as true is that I will drop a political anvil on their job-killing, secret tax plan."
"No way, no how will the liberals' secret tax hike become law when I'm Governor."
