We are shocked, shocked to learn Gov. Polis won’t be keeping his campaign promise to deliver unto us a state income tax cut.
Polis can confiscate our 2nd Amendment rights at the drop of a hat, auction off our presidential vote to the most popular bidder, and dismantle our energy economy in the blink of an eye.
But letting taxpayers keep more of the money we earn?
That’s too complicated to do this year, the Colorado Sun reports, noting it was the GOP who actually tried to get one passed.
Earlier this year, a state Senate committee rejected an even smaller 3 percent reduction in the income tax rate proposed by Republican lawmakers.
It’s the Democratic state lawmakers and Polis’s own supporters who don’t want the tax cut interfering with their spending habits and $32.3 billion budget for next year.
At least, that’s who Polis is blaming.
