Gubernatorial candidates still don’t know how to cut Colorado’s budget, stimulate its economy

The most remarkable thing about this year's gubernatorial campaign in Colorado is that the candidates talk about cutting the state's budget and stimulating jobs, but they don't know how they will get either job done. At least they're not communicating their approaches very well.


One reason is that special interests are defending and will defend their government contracts, making budget cutting difficult. The other is that the country and most of the world still are in a recession, and no governor can do much about it. 

But Obama Democrat John Hickenlooper is determined to not cut taxes because he believes all of the state's agencies are underfunded. 

He is selling "collaboration" as his solution because he has no ideas and doesn't want to offend anyone. Collaboration won't work when the collaborators will be powerful combatants in a war to defend their wallets and when they will be Hickenlooper's spend and tax friends. The latest round of babble took place last night at the Pueblo Chieftain's debate among the gubernatorial candidates: Hickenlooper, Tom Tancredo and Dan Maes. LINK: Governor's candidates outline fix for economy, by Patrick Malone.
