Re: “Our special district conundrum

The core city is languishing? My "sprawl" neighborhood is languishing! No library, no YMCA, no bike trails, only the tiniest neighborhood parks. The nearest shopping is not friendly to walkers or cyclists. The closest "open space" is closed off to the public. The core city looks much better to me. And is more expensive for smaller/older homes.

Re: “Millibo's value, road rage and bicyclists, Trump, Stein and 69

As a disabled vet with a retired wife and a damn good insurance plan I've been skeptical about ColoradoCare. I voiced some concerns and received a very intelligent, compassionate, personal reply from Bill Semple from the ColoradoCareYES management team that allayed some of my concerns. After doing the math on what part of my income would be taxed and how much CC would save me, and how beneficial it would be to "the least among us", to borrow from the Christian philosophy, I've decide to vote for Amendment 69.

I left the VA HealthCare system years ago after they made some inexcusable gaffes with my health. I have paid for my own insurance ever since. I have lobbied for single-payer health insurance for veterans modeled after Tri-Care since 1989, and I was in favor of a national single-payer plan during the debate about the Affordable Heathcare Act (I refuse to be baited into calling it Obamacare).

If I were injured or to fall ill while, say, in France, even as an American citizen I would receive free (that's right - FREE) health care that would not forward any charges to my insurance carrier or to me. My earlier post about the conversion of not-for-profit health insurance to for-profit health insurance stands as my primary argument for ColoradoCare, coupled with my savings, and the end of health-related bankruptcies.
