House Representative Kim Ransom continues our discussion regarding the budget and what is happening, or not, at the Capitol. The budget process has been disrupted due to current circumstances and it is a possibility that a special session will be called by the governor through executive order for the specific reason to fulfill the Capitol’s obligation of a balanced budget. As of now, it is believed that $900 million will have to be eliminated from the Legislative Council budget due to the expected revenue decrease.
Guest Rick Turnquist, author and blogger, joins Kim to discuss the radical left activist’s agenda brought forth in Colorado ballot initiative 271, “Policy Changes Pertaining to State Income Taxes,” and his recent article, Punishing Success. Socialistic policy is based on envy and greed; the basic premise is to take away from one group, here the productive individuals, and give to others. Capitalism is based on using our minds and hands to innovate and create, and as others see that they can better their lives by creativity, innovation, hard work and industriousness, they will replicate this productivity. The progressive infrastructure must be defeated in policy that eliminates our flat tax and empowers an unelected bureaucracy, the “Fair Tax Review Commission,” that is held unaccountable by the taxpayers. Vote no on 271.
