We’re curious if anyone has noticed a pattern with the Denver Post editorial pages.  Like clockwork they propose a new tax once a month.  The latest is a hefty Federal gas tax.

Usually, the author of these monthly tax increase articles is Bob Ewegen.  We have noted here and elsewhere that this monthly pattern exists with him.  This time, the author hid behind the “Denver Editorial Board” byline.  Care to bet this is Bob again?

Another panel commissioned by Gov. Bill Ritter, another set of recommended tax increases:

Governor Bill Ritter’s 32-member blue-ribbon panel is recommending a $100 average increase in vehicle registration fees as part of its $1.5 billion plan to pay for much-needed transportation infrastructure maintenance and improvements.The road funding proposals include:

  • Increase vehicle registration fees by $100 on average.
  • Raise gas tax by 13 cents a gallon.
  • Icrease [sic] the fee on hotel rooms and car rentals to $6 a day.
  • Increasing the state sales tax by 0.35 percent.
  • Increase severance tax by 1.7 percent.

This is starting to sound like a tired theme. I don’t know about your middle-class family, but all these proposals alone would take a significant chunk out of my household budget. Is this what Coloradans voted for when they elected Ritter to be governor in 2006?
