After Listening to Senator Bennett, I'm cautiously optimistic about the future of the Country

I had the great opportunity today to go and see Senator Bennett from Colorado speak. I was happily surprised with what I heard, and even more so when he said the it looked good as far as picking up seats in the Senate, so we can finally be able to override the filibuster! He has some great ideas about how to fix our economy that I think all voters should hear. Plus, he's a really likable guy - you can tell he really cares about his constituents. After Listening to Senator Bennett, I'm cautiously optimistic about the future of the economy.
The first thing that Senator Bennett said that really resonated with me was the need for bipartisanship in order to get anything done in Washington. He pointed out that, currently, both parties are so focused on winning the "game" that they're forgetting about the needs of the American people. I think we can all agree that this is true - we've seen time and again how nothing gets done because both sides are too busy posturing. It would be refreshing to see our elected officials actually working together for once. The second thing that Senator Bennett talked about was the need for more investment in infrastructure. He said that our roads, bridges, and dams are aging and in desperate need of repair, and that this is one area where we could create a lot of jobs. This is something that I definitely agree with - according to the American Society of Civil Engineers, it's estimated that we need to invest $3.6 trillion by 2025 just to get our infrastructure up to par. This is an issue that we can't afford to ignore any longer.
Finally, Senator Bennett spoke about the importance of taking action on climate change. He said that it's not enough to just talk about wanting to do something - we need to actually take concrete steps to reduce our carbon footprint. For example, he talked about investing in renewable energy sources like solar and wind power. As someone who believes passionately in taking action on climate change, this was music to my ears. After listening to Senator Bennett speak, I'm cautiously optimistic about the future of the economy. He has some great ideas, and he seems genuinely concerned about the well-being of his constituents. I hope that other politicians were paying attention and will take his ideas seriously - if they don't, then we're all in for a long ride...
