She Wants to “Improve Our Lives” Part 1 December 29, 2007

In what might be one of the boldest and most misleading essays ever written on tax and spending, Improving the lives of middle class Coloradans, Colorado State Rep Dianne Primivera (D-Broomfield) promises more intrusive government and pretends that no one will pay the costs.

 This legislative session I’m committed to expanding access to health care; limiting the financial burden placed on individuals, families and employers; and putting a premium on personal responsibility and prevention. I will work to hold insurance companies accountable for their rates and make sure that hospital charges are clear and transparent.

Yes, all of our health care costs can be blamed on the nasty old health insurance companies.  Last year, the Democrats in the legislature were unhappy that the the major malpractice insurer in the state was keeping costs down by fighting bogus lawsuits.  Their solution:  they wanted to make it more difficult for that insurer to fight lawsuits through regulation. 

Primivera can’t have it both ways, but tries.  Not once does this essay mention the massive tax increases on the middle class that will be required to pay for what has proven in other nations to be a broken health care system.  Socialized medicine simply doesn’t work, but the taxes needed to support it are oppressive. 

Dianne Primivera’s motto is more government, more expenditures, more lawsuits, and more taxes, but she will take no responsibility for her own actions.  Indeed, she wants to “improve our lives.”

We like short essays, so this is part one, with more parts to follow.
