The Affordable HealthCare Act continues to negatively affect those it was supposed to help: Longmont United Hospital recently announced that it will close its clinic in Lyons, CO. August 1, 2017 because it claims the Centura Health Physician Group Primary Care facility has been losing money and because of a decrease in use.
Despite these claims Lyons-area residents assert the clinic provides a critical need, especially for older members of the community, who do not have the means to travel to Longmont, Boulder, Berthoud, Niwot, or Firestone, where facilities remain in operation.
Because of the pending closure residents of Lyons and surrounding areas, which include Allenspark and Meeker Park, Riverside and Raymond, are considering options, which include bringing another medical provider to the area or asking voters in the Lyons area to raise money to keep the clinic open.
Once more affordable healthcare as run by government has failed it was intended to aid. Once more a documented reason exists to remove government involvement in anything involving the well-being of legal American citizens.
I am willing to consider the specifics – which is more than what was offered before the (Un)Affordable Healthcare Act was signed into law:
“Could” chase? WILL chase:
Worth reading, and coming to your own conclusions about the issue:
Insurance premiums for the individual market in Colorado will increase by 20.4% on average in 2017, according to Senator Cory Gardner. Much of the news media has, to date, refused to report this or investigate the claim, demonstrating they are useless.
Because individuals in the State of Colorado will have to pay this much more in 2017 they will have that much less disposable income to spend on such things as newspapers.
There are several reasons for not re-electing Democrat Jared Polis or Michael Bennet. Some of them involve language I decline to repeat here, despite the fact it describes both of them appropriately.
The reason for not retaining either Polis or Bennet goes to their undeniable failure to serve those they were elected to represent, as demonstrated by the disaster that is health care in the United States of States of America, specifically the State of Colorado.
Over the past two years alone, in Colorado, more than 100,000 people have lost their health insurance plans because of the so-called “Affordable Health Care Act”, and many have seen their premiums for subsequent health insurance plans double, triple, and even quadruple – an expense few can sustain.
Neither Jared Polis nor Michael Bennet has done anything of substance or merit to investigate and correct this inexcusable action.
Given this, then, neither should be re-elected, and both should be held responsible for their unapologetic incompetence.
