In a clear example of attempting to cut profile with his constituents in Colorado, U.S. Senator Corey Gardner speaks before an empty United States Senate Chamber that is empty.
Of course now is the time for him to start carrying on, as he is up for election in next election cycle of 2020. (Source)

It’s also clear that Senator Gardner has no understanding of the Tenth Amendment which if implemented would nullify federal law as it is not part of the U.S. Constitution.
This is typical of most in the House and Senate.
Ironically, we the taxpayers must pay the tab for their wasting time.

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado said Thursday he would block all of President Trump’s judicial nominees until the administration reverses its decision to rescind a policy that de-prioritized the enforcement of federal marijuana laws.
“Until he lives up to that commitment, I will be holding all nominations to the Department of Justice,” he said. “The people of Colorado deserve answers.”
Gardner was visibly angry on the floor and said that both Sessions and Trump vowed to respect states’ rights on the issue of marijuana in 2016.
“That was then-candidate Trump’s position,” he said. “I would like to know from the Attorney General, what has changed?”
“I believe what happened today was trampling of Colorado’s rights, its voters,” Gardner added.
Sessions on Thursday rescinded the so-called Cole memorandum, which deprioritized federal marijuana laws and was seen as a move that allowed some states to legalize the drug.
