RELEASE: Chairman’s Reaction To The State Debate In Colorado Springs

Greenwood Village, CO – At the conclusion of tonight’s “The State Debate” in Colorado Springs, co-hosted by The Gazette, Colorado Politics, and KOAA News5, Colorado Republican Chairman Jeff Hays issued the following statement:
 “Another debate, another abject failure on the part of Jared Polis to address how he intends to pay for his grandiose projects. He mentioned making Medicare available to people of every age group, reinventing Colorado’s roads, building multi-modal transportation, providing free universal preschool, and achieving 100% renewable energy, without ever sharing anything remotely like a realistic plan to pay for it.  Stapleton, while laying out his own plans clearly, did a masterful job of making clear that Polis is writing checks the state can’t cash, at least not without tripling taxes on Coloradans.”
