Vail Daily letter: Tax would create class system

Amendment 66 would amend the Constitution of the state of Colorado and institute a permanent additional tax. The money so raised would go to a privileged class that has separated itself from the health care and retirement systems of the general population.

I get the feeling that this system is leading to a class system similar to, maybe not as severe as, that which separates us financially from Congress in Washington, D.C.

There is an arrogance in:proposing this tax as a constitutional amendment; making it permanent without a sunset clause; and not including any kind of effectiveness review.

Enshrining Amendment 66 in our state Constitution furthers a financial class system and subjects most of us to a form of financial servitude.
