VIDEO: Democrat tells constituents she has to raise their taxes so she can control their choices

Denver City Councilwoman Debbie Ortega is hoping to pass a five cent tax on every grocery bag used in the city. During an Aug 13 city council meeting she tells why she wanted such a tax.


  1. You're kidding. That's your point?

  2. I'll comment here instead of Facebook. I am conservative, but this one looks a bit far fetched, to me. It is really only a 15 second clip that aims at making a point about behavior modification, when it is most likely an attempt to get people to be green. Grocery stores around the country are already charging for bags with the same goal in mind.

    Instead, can we focus on real differences in politics? Talk about strong work ethic, pride in personal success, and pride in raising a family. Talk about putting a limit on social programs. The government gets its power from social dependency. That is the problem that should be discussed. Thank you for giving me something to blog about today.

  3. On a personal note, where did you get that job feed? I love it.
