Peter Arnold 5 days, 20 hours ago on Debate on Amendment 69 healthcare proposal continues

Brice said he was particularly concerned for small business owners, including restaurant owners, who don’t currently pay for employee insurance, because they can’t afford it.

Rex, If this amendment passes what suggestions might you make to the newly created board of Colorado Care to make this more palatable for small business owners such as yourself?

Thanks

Dan that is great to hear that there are doctors more concerned with healing patients than being rich. The Hippocratic oath starts with 'first do no harm'. You are right. until the mindset is changed from 'Unless it costs too much, your insurance doesn't cover it, or profits are not compromised', this debate will go on over 69 and those who oppose it will continue to be made examples of and looked upon as selfish, greedy, and just plain heartless. OK, Ken, bring it on! Expound upon your Keynesian theories and what a terrible terrible economic blow and horrible thing 69 will be for so many people in Colorado. We wait with bated breath for your infinite knowledge.

Ladies and gentleman the conversation can stop. Ken has spoken. No need to go further. We need to turn back the clock, back to when Ozzie and Harriet were the paradigm. Ahh, to be young again Ken. Wouldn't it be nice? Then you wouldn't have to sound like the broken record tool of the right wing that you are. You would be accepted again. Debbie? Rebuttal? Where is Russel when you need him. His broken record about Yes2 is missed. Where are the other tools? Ken you need some backup on this one. It's Saturday morning, I've got diapers to change, cartoons to watch, and need some more distrcractions.

Merge with Kaiser? Kind of sounds like that time when Ben Bernanke told Jamie Dimon, "Chase will absorb this mortgage lender..." And so it went with the great bailout. You suggest what basically amounts to a market manipulation. 69 is a policy change. That is democratic. What you suggest is not. Love it or hate it the ACA seems to be helping many but we will always have problems no matter the changes made. No system is perfect. According to some people it was better in the past. That may be true, long long ago in a galaxy far far away, but for the young people starting to take control of the democratic process with more and more influence than, dare I say it, the boomers, their economy is kind of stacked against them. Prepare yourselves. It appears the playing field being leveled may be VOTED into change.

I'll be your huckleberry.

What would you like me to say?

That the death of this little boy was tragic yet preventable? That DA Barkey chose a path of least resistance to exoneration? That parental negligent death cases of the children of police officers are rarely prosecuted? That I am sick to my stomach when I try to imagine what Mr. Stiles must live with? That I agree or disageee with Ken and his contradictory summation of the results of the grand jury? That I am sorry for making fun of both of you? That perhaps someday the law may be applied more appropriately and the next time an officer takes his oath of service he or she will be made aware in training the consequences of not securing weapons? That perhaps an example will be made of someone who has sworn to protect and serve the public? That as a community we take a harder look at where we have found ourselves allowing rogue officers of the court to pick and chose what laws to enforce and what cases to try? That individuals who have failed to take the basic precautions with securing weapons are forbidden from ever owning them again?

No, Debbie Milstead, I'm not going to sit here and tell you anything you already don't know. The entirerty of the tragic events that have unfolded in Routt County over the last few years sadden me beyond comprehension. There are no words that can bring back the people who have been murdered, overdosed, taken their lives, or had their lives turned upside down.

There are no words that can change all that.

If the contractor that did the damage was a city employee how do you propose to sue yourself? Where's Paul Harvey when you need the 'rest of the story'?
