Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today released the following statement on Bill of Rights Day, December 15.
“On this day 220 years ago, the Founding Fathers put their differences aside to agree on 10 amendments to the Constitution that outline the rights and liberties we too often take for granted. The Bill of Rights serves as a bedrock for our democracy and a source of inspiration for freedom-loving people around the globe. On this day, and every day, we celebrate the wisdom and foresight of the Founding Fathers and recommit ourselves to the idea of a government for the people and by the people.”
