The discussions we have been having about healthcare have been extremely flawed and it important to understand why.
Raymond Garcia is the man the GOP trots out every other year to be a sacrificial lamb in the race for state House District 1. He’s a big advocate of the police, as you can see here from a Facebook post a while back:
Coloradans know it’s hard to get any face time with U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), who hasn’t held a single town-hall meeting this year. It’s certainly not for lack of trying, considering his constituents routinely show up at his office to try and make their voices heard, especially when it comes to incredibly important issues like health care.

Chair of CO GOP laments “divisive polarization,” yet he passes on incendiary falsehoods about Democrats on Facebook
Jake Viano, chair of the Colorado GOP, has been eating up all the attention he’s gotten based on the harassment by an anarchist of Republicans in the Denver Pride parade. Viano was all over Facebook lamenting incendiary rhetoric:
