Discovering Michael Bennet, Senator from Colorado

Discovering Michael Bennet, Senator from Colorado Sen. Michael F. Bennet’s voting record shows that he has voted for record spending and national debt. Bennet voted for the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, more commonly known as the “stimulus” or the “Recovery Act,” which is the largest spending bill in U.S. history. He has also voted more than once to raise the government's debt ceiling by trillions. Bennet is also intent on health-care reform. In 2009, CNN's John King asked then-freshman Bennet, "If . . . you are a critical vote for health care reform, and every piece of evidence tells you if you support ...

Introducing Michael Bennet, Senator from Colorado

Michael Farrand Bennet, (D-CO), was first appointed as the junior senator from Colorado in 2009 by then- Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter to fill the seat vacated by Sen. Ken Salazar, who became secretary of interior in the Obama Administration. Before his appointment as a junior senator, and subsequent election to a full six-year term in November 2010, Bennet was the superintendent of Denver public schools. The selection seemed to be a fluke to both Democrats and Republicans, who considered Bennet a dark-horse, as he lacked legislative experience. Bennet, a Democrat, had never campaigned for nor held any legislative office before his appointment. ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: The GOP quandary: How far right without falling over the edge? “…Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is at or near the top of most early polls among Republicans, likes to boast how he stuck to conservative principles to win statewide office three times in a centrist state. “To win the center, you don’t have to go to the center, you have to lead,” he said last week during a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall. Tea party loyalists are still somewhat wary of Walker, though, because of past positions on immigration and government support for ethanol, a big issue in Iowa, site of the nation’s first caucus…” ht...

HEALTHCARE: How many will have to pay back Obamacare subsidies? “More Americans will owe the government money for their Obamacare subsidy than won't, says a new analysis. A big upcoming Tax Day question is how many Americans with government-subsidized health insurance will find that they collected more in subsidies than they're qualified for and have to pay some of it back — and how many will find themselves in the opposite position, with the government owing them money. The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that half of all subsidy-eligible households will be in the first boat, owing the government an average payment of $794. That situat...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Tea Party first to cheer Cruz bid (quote by Jenny Beth) “He's a leader of the Tea Party in Washington, so it's not a surprise that Tea Party leaders are heaping praise on Sen. Ted Cruz's presidential announcement today. Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, was the first to embrace Cruz, noting his firm stands on conservative principles. "It's fitting that Sen. Ted Cruz is the first announced candidate in the GOP presidential field," Martin said in a statement. "In his two short years in the Senate, he has yielded to no one in championing the values of personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Cruz to launch White House bid, will tea party go along? (Tea Party Patriots mentioned) “…While tea party leaders still like Cruz, they’re also looking elsewhere for 2016. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, regarded as a new voice and a Washington outsider, has drawn a passionate following, particularly in Iowa. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won the 2008 Iowa caucus, retains a loyal conservative following. Walker so far has pulled ahead of everyone, and held a telephone town hall last week with followers of one group, the Tea Party Patriots. Afterward, the group said on its website “there is perhaps no one the ...

TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Early line: 3-man race for 2016 GOP nomination “Much of who’s ahead and who’s not at this stage “is based on who’s known and who’s not known,” said Fergus Cullen, another former New Hampshire Republican chairman. Cullen hosted a reception at his home for Bush last week. What’s lacking in the top tier is a hardcore conservative or tea party favorite. Tea party loyalists are sympathetic to Walker, for example, but still have some doubts. At a Tea Party Patriots telephone town hall meeting this week, some questioned whether he has shifted his position on government help for ethanol over the years. Mike Huckabee, ...
