The billion dollar tax hike slated to be on the ballot this November won’t likely be the only political loser come Election Day. Governor John Hickenlooper’s support of the measure is all but assured to further erode the moderate image he’s sought to project since taking office.
While he may have announced his support for the tax increase behind closed doors, Americans for Prosperity Colorado want to make all Coloradans know about it.
DENVER – A free-market group took aim at a union-backed plan to raise income taxes on Wednesday, referring to the proposal as the “HickHike,” and unveiling a new ad critical of Democratic Governor John Hickenlooper’s economic record.
The spot blasts Hickenlooper for his support of an across the board income tax hike, a controversial green energy mandate he signed into law that is expected to increase utility bills, and a much-maligned effort to create a new state logo that took over a year and cost taxpayers more than $1 million.
In addition to the ad, AFP Colorado also launched an online petition encouraging people to tell Governor Hickenlooper that they can’t afford a billion dollar tax hike.
