ColoradoCare fills physician RX for broken health system

The Colorado Medical Society has been dedicated to advancing the profession of medicine and to caring for the people of Colorado.

The numbers don’t lie—but Trump does

By Tom H. Hastings According to a Fox News poll taken this week, voters believe Donald Trump would do better than Hillary Clinton on the economy. This is a wildly poor assumption. Look at the fair and reasonable indicators.
