Grand Junction, CO (KKCO) The Pueblo Democrat toured the Eagle Ridge of the Grand Valley nursing home. He spoke with residents about senior issues and recent attacks on Medicare. Pace made sure that he spoke to as many seniors as possible. He even got a chance to serve some cookies and punch. Everyone was extremely welcoming and happy to see someone making a difference. Pace says Congress needs to protect seniors and medicare.

"Its critically important that we have the right priorities, and that means defending medicare and prioritizing medical over tax breaks for multi-millionaires, especially medical recipients who paid in after a lifetime of hard work," says Pace.

Pace announced his candidacy for Colorado's Third Congressional District May 2011.

    Look, a hack politician from over yonder isn't the problem. The problem you have in this valley are the Marxists that masquerade as kind caring people in the local Healthcare/Marxism complex. There was no excuse to support the unconstitutional travesty of Obummercare unless there is a financial incentive. Just follow the money and it will lead you to the answer.

    Next, he will build up the positives of “death panels”, I mean “assisted suicide”. I also hear these Communist are big on sterilizing the disabled, and leaving babies to die in the closets at the hospitals, I am sorry that was Obama.

    These jokers passed a law that literally cuts $500,000,000,000 from Medicare, limits services, increases those covered and leaves the number of medical providers unchanges> This is compassion? This is "someone making a difference?" No. This is some who is either stupid or a liar. Either way, he and people like him are extremely dangerous to people I care for and love.

    Did he tell them that his party is killing it, with Obama care.

      No, of course he didn't mention what Obamacare will do to medicare, cuz that doesn't fit the narative of the "I care" Democrats. Besides, Pace probably didn't read the monstrosity just like many of the other sitting reps and Sentors that voted for it. So he doesn't actually know what's in it. (scare mongering, it's what they do)
