Bennet supports whatever Obama tells him to support.

Obama apparently did not tell him to support the PUBLIC OPTION because even though Bennet ran internet ad for months
claiming to be the PUBLIC OPTION HERO,
when it came time to fight for our PO, Bennet failed voters.

Andrew Romanoff supported Single Payer health care reform, not the $trillion dollars given to the Insurance Companies and Insurance Mandate that Bennet voted for.

And for that, Obama used all the power of his office to meddle in our Democratic Primary prior to our vote and Steal our Nomination for his hand picked candidate, Michael Bennet.

Many Romanoff supporters who demand Honest Primaries
will be

WRITING-In "Romanoff" on their ballots
Just leaving the space next to Bennet's name "BLANK"

to protest the theft of our primary nomination. We can live with Buck for one term IF we get an Honest Primary in the future.

Buck is too extreme, in my opinion. I would rather that someone other than Bennett represent me, but he is the lesser of the two evils.

Been watching too much TV and anti-Buck ads? Those ads are disimformation and take Bucks statements out of context - completely.

Common sense isn't "extreme". Electing more of the same, that opt for bigger, more intrusive government is the extreme.

Bennet, as a lapdog for Obamas policies IS the evil.

Doctors across the US are advising their patients they will not play the Obama care game.

22 other states (so far) are also gearing up to repeal the Obama Care Law. I'm understanding the question will be on the Colorado mid-term ballot.

gutsygirl, do you call Buck wanting to first meet with doctors to get a medical professional look at what he is want to do-EXTREAM?

Or is this your preference ?-The Colorado Medical Society also invited Buck's Democratic opponent, Sen. Michael Bennet, who supported the overhaul. Bennet could not make the event.

Wow suprise suprise Bennett can't take the time to explain why he ignored the will of 70% of the American public and voted for obamacare. Does he think we will forget that he is a rubberstamp for the Obama administration? Let's remind Bennent that he should have never been appointed by the failed Gov. Ritter and make sure we elect a patriot like Ken Buck who will begin the task of undoing the devastsion caused by the socialist agenda supported by Michael Bennent.
Extreme??? Is supporting the constitution extreme? Or is the 70% of the American public against obamacare that bennent supported extreme? No wait I think it is extreme to spend 2.6 billion a day. I imagine we should be spending more right???

We want government out of our lives (In less of course, you were impregnated by your step father. Then we want government to make sure you carry your baby to term).
Ken Buck says medicare and social security recipients should get off the gov't dole. Yay Ken Buck. Yay Tea Party. More tax breaks for the rich. Let corporations pollute as much as they want. Vote Republican.

Just a small part of Obamacare goes into effect right away. One part is that anyone under 19 cannot be denied insurance for pre-existing conditions. That sounds sweet and nice on the surface BUT, the way insurance works its a nightmare. The way insurance works is a great many people pay premiums and a few have claims. The claims are paid out of the pool of money paid in. Now if you can wait to buy the insurance until you are facing a claim then there is no pool from which to pay the claim. What is this going to do to the cost of insurance for all of us people trying to do the responsible thing and carry insurance IN CASE something happens? Yup, price goes up.

One insurance company is trying to point out that this won't work for their customers. As of January 1 they will write NO individual policies for those that include kids under 19. They don't know how to underwrite the premiums with the new law so instead of guessing they just are going to exclude ALL children. This isn't a small company it's one of the biggest 5 in Colorado. Another one of the big 5 is considering doing the same thing. I hope they do.

This will only have a good effect on folks who do the right thing and use insurance the way it's intended. Their premiums will be protected from the people who mis-use insurance by jumping on only when facing a claim.

We do need healthcare reform. Obamacare, all 2700 pages of it only makes things worse. Now we need to reform healthcare AND reform Obamacare. It does nothing to make it better and many many things to make it worse. It does nothing to control costs but will drive costs up.

The reason a band-aid costs $87 at the hospital is NOT because the hospitals and insurance companies are greedy. The reason a band-aid costs $87 at the hospital is because the last 86 people didn't pay for their band-aid....Think about it.
