Statement on Hospital Provider Fee showdown

DENVER—Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement regarding the upcoming Hospital Provider Fee showdown:

“The Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights protects Coloradans from being bludgeoned by gangster government for more of their hard-earned money. TABOR protects Coloradans of all socioeconomic backgrounds and income levels and ensures that we all have a fighting chance against politicians who want to economically harm us. We must do everything within our power to protect our economy and prevent politicians from dismantling the Constitution. Politicians often look at taxpayers like an orange they can squeeze every last drop of juice out of, but every orange has only so much juice to give. The upcoming gunfight on TABOR and the Hospital Provider Fee will expose politicians on both sides of the aisle for who they really are and allow Coloradans to hold with greater accountability their representatives.”
