As soon as we get job growth going again so more people can get off the Obama welfare dole, then maybe we can have a tax base that can afford fancy fire fighting equipment. It’s not that the people don’t want another service, it’s because they cant afford another tax.

Why is it that so many people like Todd Miskel believe things that are not true? A report came out this week that compared job growth in all 50 states—Colorado ranks number 4 out of 50.

Obama welfare dole? What dole? Clearly Miskel doesn’t know that welfare reform happened under President Clinton, and there is a limit to the length of time anybody can receive welfare, and there are built in incentives to find work. Oh, maybe Miskel is talking about the corporate welfare that keeps the oil and gas industry one of the wealthiest and most profitable industries in the history of the world—since I know that he is quite familiar with that industry.

As for another tax? Colorado’s budget is required to be balanced every year, and it is. No new taxes are anticipated and if they were, they do require a vote of the people, per TABOR.

I’m really tired of seeing old, recycled talking points in the comments without any supporting facts. Educate yourself.
