FasTracks wonders: Want to pay more taxes?

The Coalition for Smart Transit is reportedly funding a potpourri of surveys and focus groups intended to determine if Colorado voters might cast November ballots in favor of a tax increase benefiting FasTracks, which is facing a $2.2 billion funding gap.

Good luck with that one. As the state faces a budget crisis so severe that legislators are already considering an added tax on candy, of all things, the odds that Coloradans will be eager to open their wallets wider are mighty slim. Nonetheless, the Coalition still wants to ask, and is willing to spend $200,000 to get an answer.

That's a lot of money for a "no."
