 IFCNR - BIOTECH WEBSITE
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) considers Colorado’s U.S. Senator Wayne Allard a legislative hero for his on-going willingness to stick his name on virtually any piece of legislation sought by the multi-million dollar animal rights and environmental activist group.
Senator Allard, a conservative during his days in the House of Representatives, is still a commodity that animal rights groups cherish: a Republican.

 Sign The Pledge
The national Republican strategy to mislead voters about Social Security is on a real roll with Senator Wayne Allard, who, in a current ad, refutes Strickland’s charge that he supports privatization by claiming that that there has “never been a vote” on privatizing Social Security in the Senate.
Allard also voted in favor of an amendment that called for using the budget surplus to establish private accounts, and to reduce the Social Security tax in the same amount as the private accounts.  This would have the affect of replacing Social Security’s guaranteed benefits with income from risk-based private investments.
The Allard plan’s private investment accounts were mandatory.  Even workers who did not wish to take the risk of investing their own Social Security taxes would have been forced to do so – and would have been forced to go along with the cuts in guaranteed Social Security benefits that these investment accounts would require.
