Jimmy Sengenberger: "Some have looked at voter registration numbers — as well as polls showing most Americans are displeased with the two major parties and clamoring for a third party (62% according to Gallup) — and concluded that a third party may be viable. But one would be foolish to think these numbers prove a third party can succeed."
Jimmy Sengenberger is host of “The Jimmy Sengenberger Show” on News/Talk 710 KNUS. He also hosts “Jimmy at the Crossroads,” a webshow and podcast in partnership with The Washington Examiner.
Jimmy Sengenberger: "Whether we’re talking about PreK-12 schooling or higher ed, things are changing. Parents and students are starting to realize the raw deal they’ve been getting with the current education systems. It’s showing up in enrollment data — and should send a message to policy makers and the educational establishments that reform must come."
Jimmy Sengenberger: "The General Assembly has an ambitious agenda: COVID-19 “relief,” a so-called “public option” to “reduce health-care costs,” to remedy conflicts between the census and redistricting commission deadlines, reform the judicial branch, fix our horrid roads and more."
Jimmy Sengenberger: "At over $1.7 trillion, it is undeniable that aggregate student loan debt represents a real crisis. The average borrower graduates indebted nearly $40,000. Student loans hamper small business startups and home ownership; they discourage marriage and families. Student loan defaults are growing."
Jimmy Sengenberger: "Over about 17 years — whether just an activist, leader of the Regis College Republicans or a talk show host and columnist — I have seen politics in this state transform dramatically. And I’ve watched the GOP lose significant ground. The party has not held the governorship since Bill Owens left office in January 2007. Republicans have held the state House for only two years since 2007 and the state Senate for four. Democrats now control all but one statewide elected position — an at-large CU Regent slot."
Jimmy Sengenberger: "I will say it bluntly: Gov. Jared Polis and his administration have already failed front-line health care workers, 'essential workers,' seniors, teachers and many other Coloradans with their botched COVID-19 vaccine rollout."
Jimmy Sengenberger: "Let’s be real: The 2020 presidential election is over."
Jimmy Sengenberger: "In 2020, college really hasn’t been all it’s cracked up to be. Students should be forgiven if they are paying an arm and a leg, racking up tens of thousands in debt and griping about their subpar experience. That’s because they’re right to complain."
