Left’s view of Hickenlooper: afraid of “a modest tax increase”

MoveOn.org’s rally this week in Denver was captured by Joseph Boven of The Colorado Independent, documenting some choice words for Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.

“Are we going to stand by quietly while a Democratic governor, of all things, proposes Draconian cuts to funding for K-12 education, just because he’s afraid to propose a modest tax increase?” said one of the speakers, according to Boven’s video above.

That tracks with WhoSaidYouSaid’s previous coverage of Hickenlooper being called out at a rally in February: “It’s time for our governor to get a backbone and stand up for labor, stand up for the working class.”

And of Democratic legislators such as House Minority Leader Sal Pace, D-Pueblo, and Sen. Pat Steadman, D-Denver, who questioned Hickenlooper’s budget priorities, after he proposed $375 million in cuts to K-12 education - and greater financial contributions from state workers toward their own benefits - as part of his 2011-12 budget plan.

Now, back to the statement made at the MoveOn.org rally.

Hickenlooper, it’s true, has said for many months that Colorado (which recently posted a 9.1 percent unemployment rate, higher than the national average) has no appetite for tax hikes.

Yet, state Sen. Rollie Heath, D-Boulder, recently proposed a ballot measure that would raise taxes in Colorado by $1.63 billion over three years, purportedly to fund education.

Modesty ain’t what it was…
