At the October 3 Arapahoe County Republican Breakfast Club meeting at Maggiano’s DTC, Barb Piper, as she regularly does, spoke to the faithful, sharing a message from Colorado Senator Cory Gardner.
North KoreaPiper delivered these thoughts from Gardner: “North Korea remains a clear and present danger to the safety of the American people. So far, no concrete denuclearization has taken place and there should be no efforts to normalize relations with this dictator, especially since, in an apparent display of its expanding military capabilities and just days ahead of planned nuclear negotiations with the United States, North Korea once again fired projectiles. We should return to maximum pressure.”
Space CommandShe said, “Senator Gardner has long pushed for Colorado to be selected as the home for U.S. Space Command and the news that Colorado Springs is the temporary headquarters is extremely exciting.”
United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA)Regarding the USMCA, Piper quoted Gardner as saying, “A great portion of our economy in Colorado is dependent on trade with Canada and Mexico, and roughly a quarter-million jobs exist here because of these trade relationships. Colorado farmers produce nearly half of all the potatoes Mexico imports from the U.S. and 97 percent of the beverages Mexico imports come from Colorado.”
Prescription DrugsPiper said, “Many Coloradans are suffering from rising prescription drug costs. Sen. Gardner has presented a bill to lower costs by increasing access to generic drugs which recently passed a key Senate committee.”
