The Top Three Ways Obama’s Mini-Me Jared Polis Wants to Fundamentally Transform Colorado
Townhall ^ | Sep 11, 2018 | Joy Overbeck

Posted on 09/14/2018 3:44:08 PM PDT by george76

Democrat Congressman Jared Polis is running for Colorado governor on a platform largely constructed from the splintered and moldering remains of Barack Obama’s failed ideas. His opponent is two-term Colorado Treasurer and solid conservative Republican, Walker Stapleton.

Polis would re-impose Obama-esque state government-controlled healthcare that has pounded family budgets with hundreds of dollars in monthly premiums for insurance they can’t even use because deductibles are so high. In Congress, Polis has introduced repeal of the Trump tax cuts that would steal thousands of dollars Colorado families are saving because of the new law, and cost the Colorado state budget hundreds of millions as well. Like Obama and Clinton, Polis would start banning oil, gas, and coal, destroying an industry that contributes over $30 billion to Colorado’s economy and over 200,000 well-paid jobs.

If the Colorado legislature didn’t go along with Polis’ radical plans, the new governor could use the lessons learned by looking over Obama’s shoulder as he used his pen and his phone to grab unconstitutional power to work his lawless will on the nation. Polis knows even if his edicts landed in the courts, as have Obama’s, it would be years before his illegal actions were reversed. By that time, he would have fundamentally transformed an exuberant, vibrant, Colorado that doesn’t need transforming into an over-taxed, over-regulated, energy-drained California East.

Polis wants to force ObamaCare-style government healthcare on Colorado.

...

Polis knew the disaster of one-size-fits-all government-dictated healthcare would drive American companies to send employees to foreign countries for surgeries that would become too costly here under the new rules. So he took steps to profit from our pain .. into a “medical tourism” company, BridgeHealth International that facilitates medical travel overseas for less-expensive procedures.

Polismoker has run a lot of campaign ads featuring the kid he and his homosexual 'partner' adopted. The kid says, 'My dad this, and my dad, that...'.

I want to ask that kid, what do you call your other dad?

Stapleton is a solid conservative Republican?! The guy is afraid of his own shadow. I will vote for him of course, yet his campaign is weak and non-willing to fight for the truth.

Colorado is turning reliably blue, sadly. I suspect Polis is going to win.

He sounds like a great businessman, a serial entrepreneur.

But, he also sounds like an egomaniacal leftist a-hole. I hope he fails in his election bid.

This clown has to be defeated. The ads against Stapleton are already frequent and brutally negative.

Because of Denver and Boulder, I expect him to win. And he will be WAY worse than Chickenpooper.

Yet he he will win here. Boulder and the liberal Denver suburbs dominate the state.

In fhe face of that, Stapleton has no chance.
