Governor John Hickenlooper the second and his BFF former Mayor of Nanny State Michael Bloomberg thought it’d be a grand idea to raise a billion dollar tax on Coloradans last November. Know who didn’t think this was such a great idea? Everyone else. The measure was absolutely curb-stomped at the ballot box last November by a two-to-one margin.
Gallup’s annual poll on taxes this week shows what should come as no big surprise. More than half the country (55%) said taxes were too high, while only 3% said they were too low. We’re guessing a majority of those three percenters suffered a fat-finger malfunction or didn’t understand the question.
What should have Democrats— with their tax and spend ways— most worried is that unaffiliated voters think more than Republicans do that taxes are too high (58% to 57%). Then again, no Democrat has ever met a problem they don’t think they can’t solve if they take enough of taxpayers dollars.
But like the old proverb says: a fool and his money are soon parted. Now, we just have to figure out if the fool refers to Democrats, or just the people who vote for Democrats.
