Coffman & Tipton bash Obama over Keystone

Colorado Congressmen Coffman and Tipton (and Republican Presidential candidates) were quick to speak out when President Obama nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline. They continue to repeat the shopworn false claims about the pipeline. First and foremost, the oil was not destined to give the United States another source of oil.

Friday the 13th Certainly Unlucky for Eagles in Loss

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Bakersfield Condors doubled-up the Colorado Eagles, 4-2, in the first game of a weekend set between the teams.  The Condors, who entered the game with the worst record in the league, got two goals from their power play, which also entered the game as the worst in the league, as they were able to take advantage of odd rebounds all night long.

Tipton would leave leukemia-stricken child in the cold

            This weekend as Rep. Scott Tipton was traveling his district, he was pressed on why he supported repealing health care reform, leaving children with cancer to the whim of the marketplace.  His answer?

The last thing parents with sick children should be worrying about is how they will get health insurance for their children, but that’s exactly what ... Full Story
