Ballot Issue

June is almost here and it’s time for the monthly Reagan Club get-together. On Thursday, June 1st, we will be hearing from Greg Brophy, who will provide insight on Amendment 71 and other current issues.

Senator Brophy was a leading force in the passage of Amendment 71, also known as the ‘Raise the Bar’ amendment, which has made it more challenging for the initiative process to produce changes to our state’s Constitution. Amendment proposals now require signatures of support from Senatorial Districts statewide, eliminating the ability of the more populous areas to dictate Constitutional changes without having statewide support. Amendment 71 had a broad base of supporters from all political parties and is a fair and common sense amendment.


The June 1st meeting will be held at Amazing Grace Church at 541 E 99th Pl. Thornton, CO. Doors open at 6:00PM-meetings usually end at 8:30PM.

Wear your Reagan buttons and be ready to win more Reagan bucks in our ongoing contest!

There is still time to get early bird tickets for $15 before Tuesday, May 30th. Early registration is encouraged, and you can get an additional ten Reagan Bucks by registering early!

More than 160 ballot measures going before voters this year

’Legalize it’: On Election Day, voters in different states get a say on recreational marijuana; hiking the minimum wage; and more.
On Nov. 8, Americans won’t just get their say on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump: voters will weigh in on a slew of ballot measures concerning everything from the minimum wage to marijuana.

More than 160 statewide ballot measures are certified to go before voters this year in 35 states, according to Ballotpedia. While that’s down from some past years, the issues remain the kinds that stir voters up. Here’s a look at some hot-button measures facing Americans around the country on Election Day.

Minimum wage: There are measures to boost the minimum wage on the ballot in Arizona, Colorado, Maine and Washington. And in a referendum that may prove to be the bane of South Dakota teenagers, voters in that state will decide whether the minimum wage should drop by $1 an hour for workers under the age of 18.

Coloradans will begin voting by mail not very many days from now, and the election will be final in barely a month.
 
Amidst all the focus on top-line races such as Trump for President, Glenn for Senate, and Coffman for Congress, we also have some important ballot issues to decide, and several are among the worst I’ve ever seen in 45 years of politics.
 
My ballot issue voter guide is online at BackboneAmerica.net, and I hope you will subscribe for updates while you’re there.
 
Briefly, we need to defeat Amendment 69 and prevent socialized medicine from being forced on our state… defeat Amendment 71 and save the people’s right to revise our own constitution… and defeat Proposition 106 to protect the vulnerable and keep doctors in the business of saving lives, not taking them.
 
In fact, after studying the issues carefully, I’m convinced all nine statewide ballot issues deserve defeat. I’m voting a “straight ticket No.”
 
Again, check out the complete voter guide at BackboneAmerica, tell your family and friends, and enter your name for future blog posts.
 
Also check out my new series with daily Bible questions, and let me know what you think.
 
Yours for self-government,

An initiative to reinstate a presidential primary in Colorado is winning by a significant margin, while a proposal to make it harder to change the state constitution has a narrower lead, according to a pair of polls released Wednesday.

The surveys follow a duo released Tuesday by the same Louisville-based polling firm, Magellan Strategies, showing that a constitutional amendment to raise the state’s minimum wage is likely to pass and a proposal to create a single-payer health-insurance system in the state is very likely to fail.

Of the two issues discussed Wednesday by Magellan, the one that appears in better shape is Proposition 107, which would replace the current presidential caucuses with a primary that would allow unaffiliated voters to cast ballots in one of the party contests. A majority of voters — 54 percent — back the proposal, while 36 percent oppose it and 10 percent remain undecided, according to the survey of 500 likely general-election voters that was conducted from Aug. 29-31.

The initiative polls best, not surprisingly with unaffiliated voters, who approve of it by a margin of 66 percent to 27 percent. Democrats back it by an edge of 60 percent to 29 percent, while Republicans oppose it by a smaller margin of 51 percent to 39 percent.

Let Colorado Vote, the campaign backing the measure, has received major contributions from a host of business groups and leaders, including more than $100,000 each from Davita Inc. chairman/CEO Kent Thiry, MDC Holdings and the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce. Chamber president/CEO Kelly Broughsaid Wednesday at the chamber’s annual luncheon meeting that with unaffiliated voters making up the largest part of Colorado’s electorate and an increasing part of the state’s work force, passing the measure should be a priority for business leaders who want to get things done at the Capitol rather than see a continuance of partisan bickering.

In the states that will determine control of the Senate, the health law is falling apart.

“You bet I voted for that bill. I’m proud I did it!” yelled Russ Feingoldat a Wisconsin campaign stop in 2010. That pride—in ObamaCare—lost the three-term Democratic senator his job. Now his party’s ownership of the health-care law may once again decide the Senate.

ObamaCare is roaring back as a political liability to Democrats in a way not seen since that 2010 wave election. Right in time for this fall’s presidential contest, insurers are bailing out of the government system, leaving millions of voters with dwindling options and skyrocketing premiums. ObamaCare was always destined to crack up, but there is something notable that it comes precisely as so much control of Washington is up for grabs.

Especially since the health law is playing an outsize role in the states that will matter most for which party controls the Senate. At least three crucial elections feature Democrats who provided the final Senate votes to make ObamaCare the law of the land. Several other high-profile races are playing out in states where the health law has wreaked particular damage. Continue reading
