Trying to Outguess Bill Ritter January 5, 2008Posted by awatcher in Uncategorized.
Sometime next week, Bill Ritter will address the Colorado Legislature. We’ve been trying to figure out which tax he plans to ask the voters to raise.
It won’t be a tax for transportation. Democrats hate transportation. We can rule that out.
Health Care? Well, maybe. It seems unlikely given that the Democrats expect to take the White House and hold Congress. That almost certainly means that health care will be nationalized. Since Ritter probably thinks that he has only one shot at raising taxes, it likely won’t be for health care.
We haven’t heard “It’s for the children” in quite a while.
We know! He is going to raise taxes to pay for a cloth factory next to the Capitol building. He will need it to supply all of the 2008 blue ribbon commissions that he will doubtless appoint. Some blue ribbon will be left over for hair bows-for the children.
We could only hope that his scheme would be that benign. It won’t be.
