ENDORSEMENT: Denver Post Editorial Board Supports Hickenlooper, Who “Coloradans Can Trust to Keep Their Interests At Heart” - John Hickenlooper for U.S. Senate1%Skip to main content Enable accessibility for visually impaired Open the accessibility menu Skip to content CHIP IN $10 TO SUPPORT JOHN HICKENLOOPER >> CHIP IN $10 TO SUPPORT JOHN HICKENLOOPER >> Home Meet John Español Facebook-f Twitter Instagram Spotify Donate Now Donate Now OCTOBER 9, 2020 ENDORSEMENT: Denver Post Editorial Board Supports Hickenlooper, Who “Coloradans Can Trust to Keep Their Interests At Heart” “CORY GARDNER IS EXCELLENT AT PLAYING THE POLITICAL GAME, BUT HE HAS PROVEN TO HAVE TERRIBLE JUDGMENT AND COMMUNICATE POORLY WITH HIS CONSTITUENTS” The Denver Post editorial board endorsed John Hickenlooper’s campaign for U.S. Senate [DATE REMOVED], writing that Hickenlooper is who “Coloradans can trust to keep their interests at heart, to make sound decisions, and to help repair our national system of governance.” Senator Cory Gardner, who the Denver Post endorsed in 2014, “had many opportunities to oppose the administration’s ‘burn it down’ approach to governance. Instead, he joined the enablers who turned a blind eye to Trump’s corruption.” The Post revoked his 2014 endorsement after Gardner sold out Colorado one too many times, writing that he’s become exactly the “political time-server” they’d warned against. Read the endorsement HERE or below:  Denver Post Editorial Board: Endorsement: Coloradans know John Hickenlooper — a man ready to serve us in the U.S. Senate  John Hickenlooper’s legacy in Colorado is that of a man who invested early in a dream to revitalize our capital city and then stepped up to lead a thriving economy, a prosperous business environment, a developed transportation network, and progressive reforms. Coloradans should reflect on Hickenlooper’s productive [DATE REMOVED] as mayor of Denver and his [DATE REMOVED] as governor as they cast their ballots for U.S. Senate. We know who Hickenlooper is: the Democratic who, as a candidate for president, decried socialism soliciting boos from a California assembly; the Democrat who convinced the oil and gas industry to agree to leak detection when the state legislature couldn’t achieve meaningful reform, and the Democrat who signed universal background checks and limits on high-capacity magazines into law after 12 people were murdered at an Aurora movie theater in 2012. He’s a man Coloradans can trust to keep their interests at heart, to make sound decisions, and to help repair our national system of governance. In fact, it’s Hickenlooper’s reluctance to enter into this race that makes him such an attractive candidate for Coloradans, most of whom would also rather not meddle with Washington-style politics. Is Hickenlooper a slick politician who wins debates? Nope, but this board is done with political gamesmanship. In sharp contrast, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner is excellent at playing the political game, but he has proven to have terrible judgment and communicate poorly with his constituents. Gardner declined to meet with The Denver Post editorial board for our endorsement process. In part, we are sure, that is because of a harsh editorial we wrote in 2019 after he didn’t join 12 other Republicans to repudiate the fake emergency declaration President Donald Trump used to steal congressionally appropriated funds from the Department of Defense. “Gardner could still prove to be a great senator for Colorado, a man who puts his state and his principles above party and politics,” we wrote concluding it was a mistake to endorse him in 2014 if he was not going to stand on principle when the nation needed him most. Gardner traded unyielding party fealty for election-year favors: the Arkansas Valley Conduit, moving dozens of Bureau of Land Management employees to Colorado, and securing billions of dollars [DATE REMOVED] for the Land and Water Conservation Fund to purchase additional public lands and pay for a backlog of projects in our nation’s parks. The price for these wins was too steep at the federal level. President Donald Trump reigned unchecked — crashing through norms, knocking down constitutional protections, stirring up racial animus, leaving American allies abroad out in the cold, and claiming more and more authority for the executive branch of government. Gardner had many opportunities to oppose the administration’s “burn it down” approach to governance. Instead, he joined the enablers who turned a blind eye to Trump’s corruption. Hickenlooper is the better choice for Coloradans in these trying times. For [DATE REMOVED], Hickenlooper [DATE REMOVED] down with The Post’s editorial board — in a socially-distanced, mask-on meeting at our Washington Street campus. He addressed his ethics infraction head-on. “These are two relatively minor reporting errors that I made, that I took responsibility for and I paid my $2,750 fine,” he said. Hickenlooper mishandled the complaint against him — as we’ve already said — but we do not believe accepting a flight on a private plane to assist in the USS Colorado ceremony was a breach of Coloradans’ trust, nor was it untoward for him to attend a conference in Italy where his transportation and meals were comped by corporate sponsors. Hickenlooper should have disclosed these gifts or paid for them. If Trump is re-elected, Hickenlooper said he would respect the office of the presidency, but stand up to the president when he is wrong. Hickenlooper noted that Gardner has still not defended Colorado’s safe and secure vote-mail system against Trump’s assault on our democracy. There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud, yet Trump continues to say there is a threat of this election being illegitimate. If Democrats sweep in [DATE REMOVED], and we are faced with a single-party government as Republicans had in 2016, Hickenlooper assured us he’s not going to let his party push him around. “I think I’ve proven, a number of times, that I’m always trying to get people together. I’m always trying to do everything I can to build bridges and find common ground,” Hickenlooper said. “But when something needs to be said, I’ve never been afraid to say it.” We think Democrats should, and likely would under the leadership of former Vice President Joe Biden, take the high road and end this escalation of extremism. Retaliation is a zero-sum game that only hurts Americans, and it’s what Trump has done for the [DATE REMOVED]. Of course, we must rollback the most egregious assaults on human decency: family separations and other inhumane policies at the border and the abandonment of our global commitments to reduce carbon emissions. But Democrats shouldn’t end the filibuster or pack the Court. Supporters shouldn’t chant “lock him up” and our leaders must not continue Trump’s abuse of the Attorney General’s office. Ramming through drastic policy changes would be a mistake too, and Hickenlooper agrees. America needs to move forward. He does not support a single-payer health care system like the Medicaid for All pushed by Sen. Bernie Sanders. “I do think we have to get to universal coverage. Health care is a right, not a privilege,” Hickenlooper said. So how do we fill the glaring gap that exists right now between those who qualify for federal health insurance Medicaid and those who can’t afford insurance on the private market even with federal subsidies? The solution clearly isn’t to force Americans off of Medicaid, as Sen. Cory Gardner voted to do when he supported massive cuts to Medicaid in proposed rollbacks of the Affordable Care Act. Hickenlooper supports creating a public option, which is something The Denver Post editorial board was pushing Congress to include in the ACA back in 2012. While Gardner says he is an advocate for America’s Dreamers, Hickenlooper signed a bill into law that gave in-state tuition to Dreamers at state universities and colleges. For Colorado high school graduates who were brought to America as children without proper documentation, this was a life-altering piece of legislation. Gardner is on record in 2013 opposing the ASSET Bill along with most Republicans in the state legislature. For [DATE REMOVED], Gov. John Hickenlooper threaded the needle between working hard to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Colorado as part of a global effort to slow global warming and lessen the effects of climate change on vulnerable regions. He balanced that against the risk of escalating energy prices and harming the state’s oil and gas industry. We think he struck a good balance and is ready to go further in Congress to reduce emissions. Coloradans know Hickenlooper: the governor who donated his $90,000 [DATE REMOVED] salary to charities while he was governor; the governor who helped us mourn and recover from floods and fires and mass shootings; the man who is ready to serve once again in Congress.

Cuidado de la Salud - John Hickenlooper for U.S. SenateSkip to main content Enable accessibility for visually impaired Open the accessibility menu Skip to content VOTANDO EN COLORADO VOTANDO EN COLORADO Indicio Conoce a John English Facebook-f Twitter Instagram Spotify Donar Donar La atención médica es un derecho, no un privilegio. La aprobación del ¨Affordable Care Act¨ (Ley del Cuidado de Salud a Bajo Precio – ACA por sus siglas en inglés) fue un momento decisivo en la salud de nuestra nación. Por primera vez, las aseguradoras ya no podían negar la cobertura a las personas con condiciones pre-existentes o cobrar a las mujeres más que a los hombres por la misma atención. Los jóvenes podían permanecer en el plan de sus padres hasta los 26 años. Se prohibieron los límites máximos en dólares de por vida en beneficios. La salud mental, los medicamentos recetados y la atención preventiva se convirtieron en beneficios requeridos. Como gobernador, estaba orgulloso de reunir a legisladores de ambos lados del pasillo para expandir Medicaid [DATE REMOVED],000 habitantes de Colorado. También establecimos nuestro intercambio estatal, Connect for Health Colorado (Colorado Conecta para la Salud), que permite a las personas comparar planes de calidad y asequibilidad. Se ha descrito como uno de los intercambios más innovadores del país. En el proceso, reducimos la tasa de no asegurados de nuestro estado a casi dos tercios. Desafortunadamente, incluso con todo este progreso, los estadounidenses siguen siendo estafados por el alto costo de la atención médica. El presidente Trump y el senador Gardner han empeorado las cosas. El senador Gardner ha votado en repetidas ocasiones para derogar la ley del Cuidado de Salud a Bajo Precio (ACA), e incluso apoya una demanda en la Corte Suprema que podría poner fin a la cobertura para personas con condiciones preexistentes, lo cual incluye casi 2,4 millones de habitantes de Colorado. La agenda de Trump / Gardner sobre la atención médica ha sido proteger las ganancias de las compañías de seguros y de la industria médica, mientras que el resto de nosotros paga más. Para muchos estadounidenses, el aumento en el costo del cuidado de la salud es una cuestión muy real de vida o muerte. Debemos construir sobre el éxito de la Ley del Cuidado de Salud a Bajo Precio (ACA) mediante la creación de una opción pública que reduzca los costos de la atención médica y aumente la competición. Demasiados estadounidenses permanecen sin seguro o con un seguro insuficiente porque la cobertura del seguro es simplemente demasiado costosa. Debemos abordar el costo asombrosamente alto de los medicamentos recetados al exigir a las compañías farmacéuticas que sean más transparentes sobre el precio de los medicamentos, lo que permite a Medicare negociar precios más bajos y poner fin a la prohibición de importar medicamentos seguros de Canadá y México. Como pequeño empresario, me parece indignante que a Medicare se le prohíba legalmente negociar los precios de los medicamentos recetados, a pesar de que VA (Asociación de Veteranos) y otros países del mundo hacen exactamente eso. También deberíamos ampliar las mejores prácticas de Colorado para frenar la epidemia de opioides mediante la expansión del acceso a la naloxona, la investigación de terapias alternativas para el manejo del dolor y la actualización de las pautas de prescripción para revitalizar los esfuerzos federales para abordar esta crisis. Y, en todos los sectores de nuestro sistema de atención médica, debemos acelerar nuestra inversión en innovación e investigación de vanguardia. Un Colorado más saludable es posible, y la Ley del Cuidado de Salud a Bajo Precio (ACA) proporciona una base sólida sobre la cual construir. Pero tenemos un largo camino por recorrer antes de que la atención médica sea equitativa y accesible para todos. Tengo la intención de luchar por ese futuro.
