After all his talk and campaign promise of an income tax reduction, Gov. Polis abandoned his support this week for paycheck relief and refused to send anyone from his administration to testify on behalf of the cut.
Not surprisingly, Democrats also declined to lend their support to a rate cut from 4.63 percent to 4.49 percent.
It’s too big, we can’t afford it, Democrats argued.
The bill’s Republican sponsors, state Sen. Jerry Sonnenberg and Rep. Rod Pelton, say the $250 million cost would be borne by the state’s $1.6 billion surplus.
It’s too small, it won’t help taxpayers, Democrats furthered argued against themselves.
Not only is Polis backpedaling against a payroll tax cut, now he’s calling for an elimination of part of the Trump tax cut.
During a hearing this week on the Senate’s version of payroll relief, Democrats informed Republicans they will never see eye-to-eye on a tax cut.
Finally, the truth comes out.
