Raising DMV fees, really stick it to all people that can't afford DMV fees the way they are. Heres an idea CUT the worthless CONstruction! They do work on I-70 every year that backs up traffic and cost the people you are robbing even more through the pump. Day or night, whatever hour you can believe that Colorado CONstruction still procedes. Why don't you ask the other MILLIONARE thieves (I mean lawmakers) to pitch on some of the bill! I can't wait to vote you out. see how long this comment stays up

Governor - stop wasting our money, raising taxes and cutting workers paychecks - while you deem yourself and the executive branch exempt from all the cuts. How pathetic you hypocrit!!!!!

How about we look at the welfare program and stop assisting those who are able to work and just keep having kids instead. Help those who NEED help, not the lazy ones.

After welfare recipients have a couple of kids, each additional child should start voiding out the previous two.

After the third, the welfare recipients would start owing the welfare system money back. That would prevent the low life from having litters of kids or they're S.O.L.

That wouldn't be after the third, that's when the voided kids start, but you get the idea.

If you are a woman on public assistance, then you are Norplanted (under the skin birth control). Vasectomies are now completely reversible- get welfare, get snipped. Get off welfare, tie 'em back up. Put prisoners to work on the roads- and no services or jobs to illegals, period. We pay taxes to provide good roads, good prisons, good education. Make this state more business friendly- let the O&G co's have all the leases they want, and make their leases cut-rate. The current environmental protections work just fine. Look at Wyoming- they have it down, and are flush with cash. Have the legislature meet every three years instead of every year- they are just SO BUSY figuring out new ways to spend money! As usual, career politicians only look at how to use subsidies to keep their jobs while screwing the truly vulnerable, the workers and job creators and future educated masses.
