VIDEO: Bell Policy Center urges voters to reject ‘bad three’ anti-tax amendments
By John Tomasic
The Bell Policy Center brought out a video Friday explaining what the "Bad Three" tax-slashing proposed constitutional amendments would mean for Colorado and urging citizens to vote them down in November. The progressive organization argues that the initiatives – Amendments 60 and 61 and proposition 101 –would effectively impoverish the state and force the elimination of essential services. That assessment is shared by most all of the major candidates for office and by lawmakers on all sides of the political spectrum.
In the governor's race, Democrat John Hickenlooper opposes the amendments, Republian Dan Maes supports only Amendment 60 but American Constitution Party candidate Tom Tancredo supports all three.
