More ugly campaigns thanks to Supreme Court

More ugly campaigns thanks to Supreme Court

  To the Editor Here they come again, those dark, ugly, negative, dishonest and disgusting political campaign ads that everyone professes to hate. Two recent Supreme Court decisions may make them worse. According to an article in the March 3 issue of Time Magazine, political parties are passé.   Campaigns from now on will be decided principally by billionaires, dueling Super PACs, and paid mercenaries and spies. Their campaign contributions will go to candidates who support their ... Full Story

Vote No on 241

Vote No on 241

Dear Editor, I am a fifth generation Larimer County native, one generation removed from the cattle business. I am concerned about Berthoud’s unneeded Growth Management Area (GMA) expansions and annexations outside of existing GMA boundaries. Berthoud’s current GMA is over 24,000 acres in size. Berthoud currently has 10,712 lots in some type of planning review (enough for a population of well over 30,000 people). The current GMA is large enough to make Berthoud similar in population size to ... Full Story

Blunt amendment killed

          Birth control exemption bill, the ‘Blunt amendment,’ killed in Senate By N.C. Aizenman By a largely party-line vote, the Senate on Thursday blocked a move to exempt virtually any employer with moral objections from the Obama administration’s controversial birth control health coverage rule. The measure, an amendment proposed by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) to a highway funding bill, was tabled—and therefore effectively killed—by a vote of 51 to ... Full Story

Gardner votes and talks

Representative Gardner Votes to Let Lawmakers Take Vacation & to Block Middle Class Tax Cut  Press Release Representative Cory Gardner (CO-04) has the wrong priorities. Gardner voted to let Washington lawmakers leave for a holiday vacation and also voted to block the bipartisan Senate plan for a $1,000 payroll tax cut for 160 million middle income taxpayers.  By going on vacation without passing the payroll tax cut, Gardner is responsible for $1,000 payroll tax hike that begins on ...

On This Day: December 10, 1869

Wyoming grants women the vote Motivated more by interest in free publicity than a commitment to gender equality, Wyoming territorial legislators pass a bill that is signed into law granting women the right to vote. Western states led the nation in approving women's suffrage, but some of them had rather unsavory motives. Though some men recognized the important role women played in frontier settlement, others voted for women's suffrage only to bolster the strength of conservative voting blocks. ... Full Story

Gardner Votes To Block Middle Class Tax Cut

Press Release VOTE ALERT: Representative Gardner Votes To Block Middle Class Tax Cut While Representative Cory Gardner (CO-04) continues to protect tax breaks for the ultra wealthy, today he voted to block a $1,000 middle income tax cut for 2.5 million Colorado families. Economists estimate that blocking this middle class tax cut could cost 400,000 American jobs. National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, who is responsible for Gardner’s re-election, has called ... Full Story

Dear Editor

Dear Editor

          Cory Gardner is my Representative. I wish I could feel he represents my interests and concerns, but my sense when I contact him is that while his office may listen politely, what I say does not weigh at all in his voting decisions. Cory Gardner has an agenda that excludes those who need responsible representation. This was made even more clear to me when he voted in favor of the “Ryan Budget” and what it would have done to the uninsured, the elderly, and ... Full Story

Disappointed in Cory Gardener

Disappointed in Cory Gardener

    Dear Editor,   I've been particularly disappointed in our Representative Cory Gardner. I can remember when Cory was running for office, he used to complain about how our congresswoman never did any town halls. Since Cory's swearing in,  he's had even fewer. I got a letter from Rep. Garden last week touting that his vote for the Republican budget plan was going to protect Medicare for people 55 years old and older, but what about the people under 55 years old? I deeply ...
