  1. TABOR Failes across the country.  Owens smacked for supporting efforts to impose the financial straight jacket.

    I suspect will we see an article or rant from John Andrews or Jon Caldera on this. But they too fail to agree with the voters on just about anything these days.

  2. He was kinda right in the sense that costs and decisionmaking for so many things was shifted to the states.  He thought programs would get cut at the federal level–well, needless to say at the federal under tax-cut-and-spend-neocon leadership of Bush, that didn’t happen.  At the state level we saw how cutting programs and investments has hurt us so Reagan ultimately was wrong.  We did what he said and it failed.  Now we have a huge hole to dig out of at the federal and state levels.

    1. When I’m talking to a tax cutting proponent, and they talk about how we pay too much in taxes, yada yada, I ask, “What IS the appropriate tax burden?”  NEVER has such a person been able to reply.  The cons only talk about cutting taxes, but never at what point do you stop?

      There seems to be a lower limit of taxation, through a huge gray zone, that we almost instinctively know.  A limit that must include ingigent care, roads, military, libraries, etc.

      Of course, such low taxation BS is just ideology.  The countries with the highest taxes, all democratically elected, have the strongest middle classes, not medical bankruptcies or fears, highest educational levels, etc.

      BTW, one guy railing on me about “I hate taxes” worked for the Englewood city government.  As did his wife.

      LOL!

  3. Colorado is finally gaining clout in the U.S. House, thanks to Diana DeGette.

    In its current issue, the prestigious National Journal identifies DeGette as one of the House Democrats’ “Deal-Makers,” the “clutch hitters with the ability to forge consensus behind the scenes when deals — or votes — are desperately needed.”

    In the same article, under the category of the “Jocks,” Mark Udall receives credit for being the second-best golfer in the House, behind Rep.-elect John Yarmuth, D-Ky.

    1. The more interesting question is whether Dennis Gallagher will face serious opposition in his reelection campaign for Auditor.  Although he received highly negative press for his cronyism and limited number of hours in the office, Gallagher has recently been a leading voice for reform of the Election Commission.  Whoever wins the Auditor’s race will be the favorite to succeed Hickenlooper in 2011.

      If Michael Hancock runs for Auditor, he may well defeat Gallagher and be poised to serve as Denver’s next Mayor.

      1. The common assumption is that the Auditor’s Office is the stepping stone to being Mayor.  It is not, just ask Don Mares and Bob Crider.

        In fact in the last 50+ years only two Auditors have been elected Mayor: Wellington Webb and Tom Currigan.

  4. that Jared Polis is running for congress, I recieved a “Happy Holidays” card from him tonight.

    I’ve never gotten one from him before and I’ve never donated to his foundation.  Wonder whose list he purchased….
