Colorado’s “Just Say No” Congressional Delegation
Now that the Colorado Republican Congressional delegation is a minority, it seems that Doug Lamborn, Marilyn Musgrave and Tom Tancredo will be using their “no” button a lot in the 110th Congress. Lamborn has admitted that he is ready to fight the Democratic bills, but with the Democrats holding a 31-vote majority, all he can do is vote “nay” and see what happens.So far the Lamborn-Musgrave-Tancredo “No” voting block has not been successful in defeating any of the house resolutions during the “100 Hours Agenda” presented by the Democrats.
