Romanoff Is No Friend to the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights

Here’s a fact: according to a 2019 non-partisan poll, 71% of Coloradans support the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR).

In 2008, while serving as Colorado’s Speaker of the House, now Democratic primary candidate for the U.S. Senate, Andrew Romanoff led a (failed) movement to undo TABOR. He wanted to change Colorado’s Constitution to allow the government to keep taxpayer refunds, and if successful, would have denied taxpayers’ ability to control excessive government spending.

Romanoff also helped pass Referendum C in 2005, which instituted a “break” from the TABOR cap, and allowed the government to spend more taxpayer money.

With this kind of track record it’s hard to believe that he would be a fiscally responsible voice for Colorado in the U.S. Senate.
