Dave Anderson is running for Congress in the 5th Congressional District. He’s running unaffiliated, challenging Republican incumbent Doug Lamborn. KRCC invited both candidates for an interview. Lamborn would not commit to a date. Here’s part of my conversation with Anderson, who says one of his main concerns is the trade deficit.

3 Responses to 5th Congressional District Q & A: Dave Anderson

  1. Carol says:

    Isn’t this typical! Lamborn disrespects the people in his district yet again.

  2. I have asked him repeatedly if he supports ACA or Obamacare. It’s a simple yes or no question. He cannot give me a simple yes or no answer. He tells me to look at his web site or sends long explanations about what’s wrong. Sorry. ACA and health care is my big issue. If you can’t say that you support it, then I can’t vote for you.

    • Lawrance says:

      We have explained as carefully as possible that Dave is not in favor of repealing the ACA, but that as it stands the ACA will not reduce healthcare spending in a way that makes American producers competitive or the American people as healthy as they deserve. To paraphrase H.L. Menchen, “For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.” As difficult as it may be, Dave wants to do what’s right for the nation. You will be your own judge about whether it is better to vote for Doug Lamborn, for Dave – or someone else.
