The schism between business groups and some members of the Republican Party in Colorado came into sharp focus Saturday when U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), speaking on conservative radio, lit into the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
A Republican who ran for U.S. Senate last year in Colorado stated on Facebook this week that “The whole Trump colluded with Russia line is BS.”
At his town halls, laments Congressman Buck, it’s “just very difficult” to get the message out about all “good things” happening in Washington
U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) said on a Denver radio show Friday that it was “premature” for the Trump Administration to appoint a special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the last election–and that it’s “just very difficult” at his town halls to get his positive message out “about the good things that are going on” in Washington.
Some Colorado conservatives are joining Trump in blaming the press for the daily-eye-pop-head-spin news stories streaming from the White House.
U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) told KVOR radio in Colorado Springs over the weekend that he has a “great time” at town hall meetings, and he doesn’t believe the “rowdy people” who attend his town halls are “paid protesters.”
In a major change since last year, state Republicans are now proposing specific cuts to Medicaid, Colorado’s health care program for the elderly, disabled, and other poor people.
