The Western United States was settled through the spirit of rugged individualism, a value that still impacts our lives today. We expect our representatives to adhere to our country’s founding principles, respect our way of life, and keep unelected Washington bureaucrats from making the decisions that we Coloradans should be making for our families. All federal actions must be an appropriate exercise of Constitutional authority. Unfortunately, today it seems like nothing is off-limits to the federal government, including our property, health care, firearms, and right to make an honest living without interference. Before I was elected to Congress, I made a commitment to oppose government intrusion and overreach. Now, as a U.S. Representative, I work every day to uphold and defend the Constitution.
