When President Trump took office, I was hopeful we could find areas of agreement such as tax reform or an infrastructure package. Bipartisan agreements on these issues that would make critical investments in infrastructure, housing, seniors and education would have helped Colorado - and at a time when we are feeling pretty significant growing pains as a state. Republicans have been in control of both the legislative and executive branch since January. I believe they have missed several important opportunities to move the economy forward and support hardworking families. I did not support the Republican tax bill. It will hurt hardworking people in the middle in order to give tax breaks to corporations and the wealthy, and unfortunately we’ve not even begun to discuss an infrastructure package.
But one thing hasn’t changed this year – we still live in the best place on Earth. Colorado has a bright future. And I will continue working to make sure hardworking families in our district and across Colorado are able to afford to buy a home, send their kids to school, save for retirement and enjoy the beauty that Colorado has to offer. I hope you and your loved ones enjoy a happy and healthy holiday season and Happy New Year!
