You do the math: CO Dems taxing businesses

Democratic legislators are jamming through new business taxes, heedless of the damage they'll do to the state's economy.

Republicans had proposed mitigating the hit through state payroll and budget cuts, which Senate Majority Leader John Morse, D-Colorado Springs, described as "political theater."

Bring out the hook! With pomposity so ridiculous it borders on rude, Morse sarcastically presented Senate Minority Leader Josh Penry, R-Grand Junction with a Cliff's Notes primer on basic math. Maybe he thought voters wouldn't be insulted by this obvious and ineffective waste of time. Or the base tone he brought to the "debate" on the issue of government spending cuts. Maybe he thinks the voters can't do the math? They can.

Penry graciously accepted the "gift" and proceeded to take Morse on a quick tour of voter fury over government excess in Massachusetts, Virginia, New Jersey and (coming soon to a "theater" near you) Colorado.
