Polis’ Failing Grades Are Bad News For Colorado

Polis’ Failing Grades Are Bad News For Colorado

October 22, 2018

It has been a while since liberal Colorado gubernatorial candidate Jared Polis was in school, but he just got another report card, and the results are nothing to write home about.

While Polis has failed on a range of issues, what we at Power The Future are most concerned about are his atrocious energy policies. Taxes can be lowered, education programs can be tweaked, and bad laws can be repealed. But if Polis has his way he will utterly destroy Colorado’s energy industry, and that kind of damage cannot be undone. It may surprise you to hear Polis wants to destroy the energy industry, but that is just how he likes it.

See, Polis received an A+ in hypocrisy for his deceptive stance on energy. While Polis has quietly opposed Proposition 112, he is an advocate for 100 percent renewable energy by 2040, a policy that would completely wipe out Colorado’s energy industry and countless jobs.

It takes decades to build healthy industries that in turn support entire communities with the jobs they provide. However, it only takes one bad politician to decimate all that progress.

With his renewables stance, Polis has declared his intention to do just that, and for that reason, he gets a failing grade.
