A Voice of Colorado No. 424 Version 5.0:

Unless you are a politician, and your health care is paid for by the taxpayer of the United State of America, the concern of health care costs is the issue of the day.

If you have an individual health care plan you are likely faced with an increase in premiums ranging from a modest twenty-four percent to more than fifty percent from 2017 to 2018.

There is no justification or rationale for this dramatic increase in health insurance policy premiums. There is no reason for why health care costs in the United States of America have skyrocketed. There is no excuse for why the members of the United States Congress have failed to address this issue, which will affect everything in the economy in 2018.

The President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, has warned the members of the United States Congress that if they fail to address this economic and financial matter soon he will do so through an executive order. Their failure to take the matter seriously must result in their removal from office.

Immediately.

A Voice of Colorado No. 400 Version 5.0:

If Democrat John Hickenlooper were not a self-serving politician with dishonest intentions his dog-and-pony show bankrolled by taxpayers might merit consideration. The fact of the matter is his political grandstanding is evidence of his incompetence which he is desperate to deny and hide. He has failed, as have all politicians currently holding elected office.

A Voice of Colorado No. 394 Version 5.0:

If Xcel wants a rate increase let the executives of the company take a pay cut first – of at least ten percent.

A Voice of Colorado No. 386 Version 5.0:

If the Chief Executive Officer of a given health insurance company cared about the people they supposedly serve through the sale of health insurance they would work for no more than a dollar a year, and the remainder of their annual pay package would not exceed one percent of the net profits.

A Voice of Colorado No. 382 Version 5.0:

A proposal by Democrat Michael Bennett to expand Medicare with a program he calls “Medicare-X” is one example of his incompetence and lack of fitness for elected office. The only way health insurance can work is if the government is removed from involvement at all levels.

If Mr. Bennett understood basic economics he would know this and know his proposal is unrealistic.

A Voice of Colorado No. 380 Version 5.0:

The (Un)Affordable Health Care Act continues to take its toll on residents in the State of Colorado, specifically in eastern Colorado, which will see an average increase of thirty-four percent increase across all individual health insurance plans. Some eastern Colorado counties will see increase on the few plans offered there accurately described as “massive” or ‘obscene’: In Logan County the eleven plans offered will see an average increase of fifty-one percent. The reason for the dramatic increase is because the six bronze plans offered will go up fifty-five percent in 2018.

Not a word of explanation from elected officials in the State of Colorado or at the federal level. Not an indication from any elected official at the federal or state level for this inexcusable increase and expression of failure and incompetence.

Logan County residents are not alone. In Phillips County individual health insurance plans will see an average increase of 40.4 percent across the twelve plans offered. In Washington County there will be an average increase of 53.7 percent across the ten plans offered. Yuma County will experience an average increase of 37.6 percent for the twelve plans offered.

Meanwhile politicians that include Democrat John Hickenlooper and Michael Bennett propose self-serving solutions that are nothing more than variations on the existing failure. Mr. Hickenlooper is term-limited. Mr. Bennett is not, and should be removed from office immediately through recall or impeachment.
