Zornio: Manchin is the Grinch who stole Christmas, and it’s impacting Coloradans
Sen. Joe Manchin may not be Colorado’s representative, but his actions are a direct threat to local families

Opinion: A faith perspective on why Colorado should expand Colorado’s tax credits for working families
By closing loopholes and expanding tax credits that help working families, Colorado will be doing the right thing — both economically and from a perspective grounded in love for our neighbors.
How Michael Bennet plans to ensure the Child Tax Credit expansion lasts longer than a year
The policy, which essentially provides guaranteed income for the vast majority of Americans with children, was included in the $1.9 trillion coronavirus aid bill. There’s no guarantee it won’t go away in 2022.
Sen. Michael Bennet: How Biden’s COVID-19 relief bill helps cut child poverty
