A new political ad wants you to believe tourists will pay for road repairs in Colorado if you vote for Proposition 110.

The ad leaves out that you’d be paying for that same tax increase.

“Let’s Go, Colorado” is the catchy name chosen by not the not-so-catchy Coloradans for Coloradans group that wants you to vote yes on Proposition 110.

Proposition 110 asks voters to increase the state sales tax from 2.9 percent to 3.52 percent for 20 years to fund up to $6 billion in road projects statewide.
