Bennet defends vote against closing tax loopholes for big oil

Full story: Fox 31 KDVR

In a fundraising appeal to supporters earlier this month, Sen. Michael Bennet referred to the Gulf spill as an example of how "the old ways [of doing things] just aren't working," how "lax regulations and long-standing corporate loopholes" have lead to catastrophes from Wall Street to the so-called "Redneck Riviera."

I want to know what the candidates think about closing the Categorical Exclusion loophole for on-shore drilling, like those right here in Colorado. Both the DOI Inspector General and GAO found significant abuse at BLM in managing the onshore mineral estate as well--something very relevant to Colorado.

For the most part gov. regulations have nothing to do with safety or drilling a hole to get oil.
Government regs. have to do with law suits, CYA, bureaucratic corruption, pay-offs,and, politics.
Who do you think knows more about safety and drilling an oil well? A government regulator or a Tool Pusher?

Please, folks, don't look at what the politicians actually do. We, as sheep, are supposed to only listen to what they say.

Yes I am! I have indentified and recognized how mass media culture has permeated our thoughts and actions. Our minds are filled with sound bytes from movies, news personalities, tv shows, commercials, etc. Freedom of true creative thoughts are lost in a cocophony of internal dialogue within us all.

To deny your sheepness is truly a lie to yourself.

Senator Michael Bennet is a progressive liberal and uses the vote We lent to him to vote against the best interests of Our nation and Our citizenry. He is very much for Amnesty, and not enforcing Our Immigration and Naturalization laws in favor of open borders and the lose of Our sovereignty as a nation. Also, Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), a freshman Senator who is fighting to hold his seat in 2010, said he would support health care reform even if it cost him his job.

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," the Colorado Democrat was asked whether he would vote in favor of the legislation even if "every piece of evidence tells you, if you support that bill you will lose your job."

"Yes," Bennet replied.

Again proving he could not care less about his Oath of Office, Our Constitution or maintaining Our freedom of choice. He is a socialist and anti-American.

Michael Bennet also co-sponsored the Disclose Act so unions now get nearly unrestricted, undisclosed political spending. Further, the restrictions in the DISCLOSE Act only cut one way against business. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/blo...

The Disclose Act, which exempts big establishment "grassroots" is aimed at movements like the Tea Party that aim to restore the republic. http://www.campaignforliberty.com/blog.php...

We MUST may sure Bennet does not retain his seat to work against Our country and Our citizens.
