Like most everyone else, when U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) made his wild claims about surveillance of the Trump administration, I was a bit confused about the purpose. He seemed to be acknowledging that they had been caught up in monitoring of foreign adversaries via legally obtained FISA warrants. This indicates that members of Trump’s administration were talking to the bad guys we were monitoring. It certainly didn’t support Trump’s claim that Obama had him “wiretapped.” Now today he has come out to say there is no evidence of the wiretapping Trump claimed.
Justin Ratzlaff is the Chair of the Rio Grande County GOP, and he has a Confederate flag tattoo on his arm.
Colorado State Rep. Justin Everett (R-Littleton) posted this on Facebook recently. It’s an assertion without evidence that “contrary to what you may have heard…wages go up and unemployment goes down” in so-called “Right to Work” states.
Colorado GOP Vice Chair Derrick Wilburn is either one of the most dishonest politicians in Colorado or one of the most ignorant (or perhaps a mixture of both). In today’s example, he posts old video of a confrontation between protesters and police from last May and implies it just happened. I don’t know if he actually believes it happened recently or not, but he doesn’t indicate to his audience that it’s old news, with predictable results:
Coffman once said it was “very radical” to give health insurance to millions of people who now have it under Obamacare. Now he’s ready to take it away.
U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) is making conflicting statements on whether he wants to continue to give health insurance to the 400,000 Coloradans, including 14,000 in his district, who got health insurance under Obamacare’s expansion of Medicaid.
I ran across this story about a “Rifle woman” going to Washington for a Donald Trump healthcare “listening session”. It seems strange to hold a listening session after the bill has already been committed to paper and the GOP has had more than seven years to “listen” and formulate a better healthcare plan than the Affordable Care Act.
State Rep. Joseph Salazar (D-Thornton) announced at the Protect our Muslim Neighbors Rally, that he was committed to showing up for Colorado’s Immigrant community and was introducing a bill titled the Ralph Carr Freedom Defense Act.
Amid national political attacks on transgender rights, Colorado’s State House passed a bill yesterday that would make it easier for people to change the gender on their birth certificate to the gender they identify with.
I’ve written in this space about Rep. Tim Leonard (R-Evergreen) before. He is one of the most radical members of the Colorado State Legislature. Well, he’s at it again, this time posting this video with a cryptic warning to know the cost/benefit trade-off regarding vaccinating children.
Parents are often criticized for the choices they make, but rarely are the structural issues that facilitate these choices addressed.
