With local sign-ups for “ObamaCare” exceeding expectations (causing a 90-day backlog at Mesa County’s Department of Health & Human Services), local voters should heed the Sentinel’s headline to Gary Harmon’s timely report:  “Health law spurs Gardner to enter race” – chronicling how 4th C.D. incumbent Cory Gardner (R-CO) is now running for the Senate against Democrat Mark Udall for the purpose of depriving Coloradans of access to affordable health insurance and/or health care.  In addition, Gardner has consistently:

•  Been an ideological “foot soldier” in Republicans’ “war on women” by ardently supporting the twice-defeated “personhood” ballot initiative to outlaw abortion—even in cases of rape and incest—and to ban many forms of contraception;

•  Voted for the “Ryan Budget”, which would “end Medicare as we know it”, slash education funding, and give millionaires another $125,000 tax cut;
•  Joined fellow-Republicans in proposing to privatize Social Security;

•  Like the 3rd C.D.’s own “subhuman mongrel” Scott Tipton, threatened “the full faith and credit” of the United States—holding our Nation’s solvency hostage for Social Security, Medicare, and/or “ObamaCare” cuts and causing the largest one-day increase in our national debt in history;

•  Like Tipton, voted 40+ times to repeal, replace, and/or de-fund “ObamaCare” – and would still deliberately deprive thousands of Coloradans or the access to affordable health care and/or health insurance the now enjoy under “ObamaCare”;

•  Like Tipton, irresponsibly voted to “shut down” the federal government – costing our economy some $28 billion – while denying any responsibility therefor;

•  Opposed federal aid to natural disaster victims—making it harder for Colorado to receive needed flood relief;
•  Opposed the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”—the military’s ban on openly LGBT volunteer-soldiers from serving our Country; and
•  Opposed the “DREAM Act”, which would give young undocumented immigrants brought here illegally as children a “pathway to citizenship”, and instead voted to treat them as criminals and accelerate their deportation.

Clearly, Gardner cannot represent Colorado values like Mark Udall does.
