In response to Vince Adams’ article “Musgrave accomplishes rising star status,” I would like to suggest that he checks his facts before throwing out accusations of fascism. Marilyn Musgrave and other backers of the amendment to protect marriage see the issue as it is – the need to protect the sanctity of one of humanity’s oldest and most cherished institutions. That hardly seems like “fascist values” to me. And to say that Musgrave hasn’t represented Northern Colorado’s values is, at best, a misrepresentation of the facts. Marilyn Musgrave has helped to eliminate the tax on farm equipment and fought against a congressional bill proposed by Democrats to raise taxes on gasoline, which would hit farmers in our congressional district hard. She also worked with Gov. Bill Owens to pass over $1 billion in tax cuts in the state to help create jobs. Helping farmers and helping to create jobs – that sounds like Northern Colorado values to me. Go to www.musgrave2004.com. All the information you need on her positions is right there.
