I can’t tell ya how excited I was to read, “Is Medicaid Gobbling Up Colorado’s Budget,” in The Denver Post, and reporter John Ingold did not let me down.
Durango officials pressed Gardner and others to allocate more time for questions at skinny town hall
Last week’s skinny town hall, with U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) and other Colorado lawmakers, was originally scheduled to last 45 minutes, with about 10 minutes going to each of four lawmakers, followed by a question-and-answer period lasting maybe five minutes.
During a conference call with constituents Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) said he’d hold a town hall meeting as soon as he gets his “schedule in Washington figured out.”
Back in 2015, before conservatives were removed from the Jeffco School Board, the Independence Institute’s Dave Kopel made the memorable observation that school board member Julie Williams got the “rest of the board into trouble with a lot of foolish, barely thought-out ideas she has expressed inappropriately.”
A much anticipated “town hall” meeting with U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) and other politicians, scheduled to take place in Durango tomorrow, may include just five minutes for questions from constituents, according to one of the event moderators, La Plata County Commissioner Brad Blake.
After first being undecided and then voting for three GOP proposals to kill Obamacare, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) says he has yet to figure out whether he’s supportive of the latest Republican healthcare proposal, put forth by Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), which would, among other things, end Obamacare’s Medicaid subsidies and, instead, block grant most of Medicaid expansion funds to the states.
