Cary Kennedy – Candidate for Governor

Cary KennedyAs Colorado’s State Treasurer and Denver’s Deputy Mayor and Chief Financial Officer, Cary is widely known for her financial expertise and extensive qualifications. She reformed Colorado’s and Denver’s finances by ending risky Wall Street investments; putting us on a more solid financial foundation before and despite the historic recession and pushing for more transparency. She has been on the forefront of fighting for education for Colorado’s kids, including crafting the BEST program that has funded the renovation and replacement of more than 380 crumbling schools across Colorado and authoring Amendment 23 that protects education funding.

Cary is running for governor to make sure we have a public education system that ensures that every Colorado student, by the age of 19, regardless of where they live and how much their family makes, is ready for higher education, a career, or both. She has offered a plan with a public option to help make health care more affordable and accessible. And she will fight to protect the Colorado we love.

GOP Tax Reform is Anti-GOP

Pundits have been talking up the lowering of tax rates for the ultra-rich and making that the prime focus of explaining it. However, the central theme of previous Republican Party theory has been reducing the national debt, through balancing the budget, and the goal of never having a deficit. That has been their mantra that appeared as the reason for tax reduction to corporations, small businesses and individuals. Puff — that central theme is gone — the smoke entrails only hint that some Republicans even remember their core beliefs. Curtailing spending, reducing taxes and balancing the budget would eventually reduce the debt, and the country would be healthy again. Of course, we progressives differ on what kind of spending should be cut, and who needs tax relief, but for the moment, our focus is on the dishonesty of making false promises, or to be blunt, lying.
Giving mass tax relief to the super wealthy while at the same time raising the debt ceiling by nearly two trillion dollars would have been unthinkable in previous administrations, either Republican or Democratic Congresses. The donors of the Republicans apparently have upped their goals toward ownership of the United States, rather than simple majority rule. The march toward a different form of Constitutional government is underway — be wary of brains that bounce to the goose stepping of oligarchs.
