Q: What do you think is the most critical issue so far this session?
A: The size of government and government bureaucracies. The cost, the waste, the duplication and the potential for government ‘employees’ to vote for those promising more government programs insuring their own job security.

Q: What do you think is the most critical issue so far this session?
A: I believe immigration at all levels; legal, illegal and refugees, drives many of the problems and costs in this state and the nation. Jobs are taken from Americans by both legal and illegal aliens. Wages are driven down and unemployment for Americans goes up. Taxpayer money is spent for welfare, food stamps, schooling and Medicaid for both legal and illegal aliens. An estimated 49 percent of households headed by legal immigrants use one or more welfare programs. Refugees are being brought in by the thousands and resettled who knows where. Taking in massive number of refugees from countries that hate the United States is idiotic at best, suicidal at worst. A Center for Immigration Studies report states that “on average, each Middle Eastern refugee resettled in the United States costs an estimated $64,370 in the first five years, or $257,481 per household. Very heavy use of welfare programs by Middle Eastern refugees, and the fact that they have only 10.5 years of education on average, makes it likely that it will be many years, if ever, before this population will cease to be a net fiscal drain on public coffers.” This is taxpayer money that could be spent on the Americans instead. While I understand that many of these programs and requirement are set the Federal level, there is much that can be done to eliminate incentives at the state level. A few examples are:

1. Eliminating funding for sanctuary cities such as Denver and Boulder that attract illegal aliens.
2. Forcing businesses to use the E-Verify system for hiring purposes.
3. Rescinding the ridiculous Colorado law that gives driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.
4. Standing up to President Obama and the Federal government and not allowing Middle Eastern refugees to resettle in Colorado.

Thank you.

Q: What do you think is the most critical issue so far this session?
A: 1) We need small businesses encouraged. 2) CDOT oversight—the director of CDOT cannot explain where money has gone —I just don’t know why CDOT NEEDS a new “campus” in Pueblo. 3) Surplus revenue needs to be returned to the taxpayers-per TABOR.
