Amendment 69: Opportunity for Change

Amendment 69: Opportunity for Change

To the editor: I support ColoradoCare-Amendment 69 because it will provide access to affordable, quality healthcare for all Coloradans. This matters to the families of Coloradans who die each year because they don’t have health insurance; to those declaring bankruptcy because they can’t pay medical bills; to those who pay ever higher premiums for increasing deductibles and more limited benefits; to healthcare providers who deal with more paperwork and red tape to provide patients the ...

Buzz Sweeney for District 49

I am running for Colorado House of Representatives District 49 because you deserve a choice. Two years ago my opponent ran unopposed.  The differences between us is like night and day. I am absolutely sure women should receive equal pay for equal work and make their own health care decisions. Science, not intuition, tells me why the polar ice is melting and why our trout streams are warming. In 2004 Colorado adopted the forward thinking goal of 30% of our electrical power coming ...

In 2006, the CMS House of Delegates recognized that: "The health care system in Colorado is broken and the entire system needs to be reformed. Working only on one part will cause problems in other areas." The ... Full Story

On Donald Trump

On Donald Trump

To the Editor, Donald Trump loves everybody.….until someone criticizes or disagrees with him. Then he is not one to reflect on criticism. Instead, as we have seen, he becomes extremely vindictive and, with great relish, sets out to destroy that person. This would be a frightening tendency if possessed by a person able to exercise the powers of the U.S. presidency. I believe it would be irresponsible to give Donald Trump those powers.

Loveland Sales Tax on Food

Loveland Sales Tax on Food

  Should Loveland eliminate its sales tax on food? I say no for three reasons; Elimination would cost the city $6.2 million per year. Elimination would remove the city's most stable revenue source; the only one that will be there for us in good times and bad. Its negative effects can be mitigated. First, how I rate a tax: Is it progressive or regressive, stable or volatile, painful or barely noticeable? Four examples: Income tax:   Progressive and barely noticeable, but volatile. In ...
