Democrats Won in Colorado Because of #TABOR

According to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, in September Colorado’s unemployment rate was 8.2% compared to the national rate of 9.6%.  In the 2010 ALEC-Laffer State Economic Competitive Index, Colorado ranks 15th in economic performance and 2nd in economic outlook.  I think this is due in large part to the limitations TABOR (Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights) has put on taxes and government spending.

Since voters in Colorado aren’t hurting as much as voters in most other states, they weren’t as angry with Democrats and didn’t turn to Republicans in as large numbers.
