    I was told that I could find the contents of this town hall at FRL. A big thank you to FRL for a great job in reporting this. The sound and video quality are tops! Though I couldn’t attend, it was great to see questions asked that I could not ask. Democracy in action! If a major league team were scouting for players, Representative Gardner would sign with the Dodgers!

    Gardner appears to be much more at home speaking with far-right radio personalities. In fact, he had some very definite things to say about the Department of Energy.

    (from Gardner’s remarks at link above)
    “Gardner: Well, it really goes to the heart of what’s happening now in the bigger discussion on whether or not we should be trying to do all things for all people. I mean, certain people in the aviation industry do pay user fees to land. They do pay av tax on their aviation fuel. And that comes back to the airport and helps fund projects like the runway extension. But if you look at the broader picture of transportation in general, Colorado gets less than a dollar for every dollar of tax dollars it sends in for the package of highway systems. So we are a net loser when it comes to sending a dollar in and getting less than a dollar back.”

    This man is such a shill for private use of public funds. No wonder Longmont’s hard-cores love him so dearly. Nothing like funnelling public funds into private pockets, one of the GOP’s oldest scams.

    Disingenuous at best. As I recall, most of the red states get more tax dollars back than they send to D.C. That’s OK. This is the United States of America. (Or it once was.) It’s classic “from each according to his ability; to each according to his need.” It is also the root of Jesus’ teachings.
