 Reveal How Much Taxpayers Are Paying For Political Fundraising Trip to Colorado

DENVER - Colorado Republicans tonight demanded that President Barack Obama and Senator Michael Bennet reveal how much taxpayers are paying for the President's "blatantly and solely political trip to Denver to raise money for Michael Bennet."
"Colorado taxpayers deserve to know how much it costs to fly Air Force One along with all other federal expenses so that President Obama can come to Denver to prop up Michael Bennet," said Colorado Republican State Chairman Dick Wadhams.  "Rather than raising money for the accidental senator, President Obama ought to meet with Colorado taxpayers and explain why he, John Hickenlooper and Michael Bennet said their failed 'stimulus' bill would create 60,000 jobs one year ago."
