Tax proposals would hurt Colorado job creators

At the Colorado Democrats “Budget Listening Tour” stop in Denver on Saturday, Colorado state Sen. Irene Aguilar, D-Denver, made sure that - in addition to tax proposals from Sen. Rollie Heath, D-Boulder, - attendees were aware of the initiatives that the Colorado Fiscal Policy Institute is putting forth to create a progressive income tax (designed to raise state revenues.). According to Sen. Aguilar:

“I just want to point out one thing: we’re all aware of Sen. Heath’s ballot initiative to raise taxes back to 1990 levels but there’s also this organization online; the Colorado Fiscal Policy Institute. Carol Hedges is the economist who leads it. She’s very much in favor of progressive taxes, and I know she’s thinking about running a ballot initiative this year. But she looks into all of those things more in depth, in terms of how do you do it in an equitable manner so you don’t end up inadvertently penalizing the most vulnerable in our population.”

I would argue that some of the most vulnerable right now are actually the job creators, the people who would be hardest hit by those tax proposals.
