Republican Colorado State Senator Ray Scott, a noted climate change denier and tireless promoter of oil and gas drilling, is now proposing charging a tax on bicycles in addition to the 2.9% state sales tax people already pay when they purchase bicycles.  In Oregon, Democrats proposed such a tax and Republicans opposed it, leaving some wondering why Ray Scott is starting to act like a Democrat. Scott floated the idea on Facebook, and then got a lot of backlash for it. However, he is still considering the idea. Unfortunately, Sen. Scott has a very thin skin and has blocked many constituents from his Facebook page for opposing his stands on issues. People who have been blocked from Sen. Ray Scott’s Facebook page can read his response to the opposition here.
