Buck and Bennet spar over tax cuts and spending

The two candidates for the U.S. Senate from Colorado sparred sometimes good-naturedly, sometimes with knuckles bared Saturday during their Club 20 debate.

Buck said Bennet is a spender in Washington, D.C., during the week, “and he preaches financial conservatism on Sunday” in Colorado.

Buck, Bennet shot back, “doesn’t have to leave the state to say one thing in one place and something else in another. That’s what politicians do.” Bennet, the former superintendent of the Denver Public Schools, painted himself

Buck, the Weld County district attorney, asked Bennet to withdraw a campaign advertisement that was criticized by the Denver television stations and newspapers as misleading. Bennet refused to do withdraw it.

  1. The government STEALS THAT MONEY from the ‘rich’ and wastes it on garbage programs like ‘congressional salaries and congressional retirement accounts.

    Any leftovers congress spends on buying votes and supporting criminal activities like acorn and seiu.

    Bennet’s vote was STRICTLY FOR POLITICAL REASONS, not for the best interests of the nation.
