9.5 % Unemployment, $13 Trillion Debt, 14.6 Million Unemployed, 2.5 Million Lost Jobs, 4 Million Foreclosed Homes

GREENWOOD VILLAGE- Colorado Republicans welcomed Democratic National Chairman Tim Kaine to the “rally for the failed Democratic agenda of lost jobs, deepening debt and increased taxes.”
“There is a clear reason why 68,000 more Republicans voted in Tuesday’s primary than Democrats,” said Colorado Republican Chairman Dick Wadhams. “Colorado voters see the consequences of the failed Obama-Bennet-Ritter-Hickenlooper agenda.”

Wadhams said Senator Michael Bennet and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper along with every other Democratic nominee for state and federal offices support policies clearly opposed by the majority of Colorado voters:

--The failed “stimulus” bill that Obama and Bennet promised would reduce unemployment to under 8 percent and would “create or save” 3.5 million jobs. Today the unemployment rates stands at 9.5 percent with 2.5 million jobs lost and 14.6 million people unemployed not to mention 4 million foreclosed homes.

--The health care “reform” monstrosity that a clear majority of Colorado voters want repealed.

--The “cap and trade” national energy tax that will raise taxes on every family and small business.

“Colorado Democrats should be apologizing to Colorado voters today for imposing these failed policies on families and small businesses,” Wadhams said.
