Democrat Governor Bill Ritter’s blue ribbon commission to reform health care has come up with an idea that would blow a mile-wide hole in the state budget, reports the Colorado Springs Gazette. But who is going to foot the bill for the proposed bureaucratic nightmare? Colorado Republicans, conservative and moderate independents, and even plenty of Democrats know this plan isn’t going to fly.
After all, it’s only one of five plans the commission is floating. Once we all waste our ammunition shooting down the big, bad, scary plan, the Democrats will try to sneak through one of the less offensive (but still $1-3 billion a year costly) alternatives. Mark my words.
