Things are not going as planned here in Colorado. We are having a tough time recovering from COVID and getting our neighbors back to work. So tough that our governor and legislature are PAYING people $1,600 to go back to work, after paying them more than they made at work to stay at home.
And that’s after emptying the coffers of unemployment benefits for the state, and borrowing billions from the federal government.
