Coloradans Vote Heavily Against a Tax Increase That Would Benefit Schools and Colleges

November 1, 2011, 11:36 pm

Colorado voters have rejected an attempt to raise state income and sales taxes temporarily to support public schools and colleges, The Denver Post declared Tuesday night as preliminary election results were coming in. Supporters of the measure, known as Proposition 103, had hoped for its passage to help make up for steep cuts in state spending on education and for the loss of federal stimulus support. But with 61 percent of precincts reporting, Coloradans were voting heavily against the measure, with 35 percent in favor and 65 percent against.

I thought blue states were bending over and grabbing their ankles willingly for tax increases?

Nope, every State and City in the Nation is dealing with this. We have our own pension reform for State and City going under vote here shortly. It's either that or layoffs. There is already sky high inflation. You cannot get tax payers to pass yet more taxes during a recession with out of control inflation. The average tax payer is taking a beating on their weekly paycheck. This is going to have to be shared pain across the Nation.

It went DOWN in flames.

VOTERS reject a big tax increase for more education money.


Another WIN for fiscal conservatism and sanity. This could bode ill for the democrats.

Why is this in the PoC forum? Shouldn't this be in the Colorado forum? It's DEFINITELY a local issue.
