Colorado sovereignty must be defended against our overpowering federal government. A bold, conservative leader, Amy Stephens lead the fight for states' rights.
Majority Leader Amy Stephens knows Coloradoans can govern themselves better than the federal government can, and that is why Amy created firewalls to protect us from the federal intrusion of Obamacare.
Majority Leader Amy Stephens led the fight to defend Colorado citizens and businesses against the oppression of Obamacare:
*She initially sponsored HB11-1273 to repeal Obamacare in Colorado; however, it was killed by the Democrat Senate so Amy passed SB11-200 to protect Coloradoans from Obamacare and allow us to determine the way our health care is delivered.
*SB11-200 created a Colorado legislature-controlled, business-supported, free market health care exchange with NO mandates to buy coverage, NO mandates on what private healthcare plans cover, and NO state funds expended.
*This innovative bill was endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business; the Colorado Association of Commerce & Industry; the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce; the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce, and the Colorado Springs Gazette editorial board.
*Her strong, state's rights approach is vigorously supported by Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, our champion in the states' lawsuit against Obamacare, and is the major reason he enthusiastically endorsed Majority Leader Amy Stephens.
Majority Leader Stephens leads the fight for federalism: she sponsored a bill encouraging Colorado agencies to seek waivers from oppressive federal mandates (HB12-1175) and sponsored the "Blueprint for a Leaner Government" Act (SB10-164), a bold roadmap for shrinking state government bureaucracy.
Majority Leader Amy Stephens boldly leads the fight to get federal and state governments off the backs of Colorado citizens and businesses!
