In primary voting that concludes today, for the first time in history, Colorado’s 1.2 million unaffiliated voters will be able to cast a ballot in a Republican or Democrat primary. Ballots were mailed to all voters, affiliated and unaffiliated alike, on June 4. Those 1.2 million “active unaffiliated voters” received both Republican and Democrat ballots, and they could choose one or the other. For the first time they have an equal vote with long-time party loyalists in the selection of a party’s nominees.

Last year I sponsored Senate Bill 17-065, which the governor signed into law in April. It requires hospitals, doctors offices and other medical clinics to publicly post their most common charges for medical services. It is not intended to be a burdensome requirement, as there is a limited number of services to be listed. The purpose is to give citizens a better idea of what medical procedures cost before they get the treatment or the bill, and to start that much-needed conversation concerning the cost of medical services between a doctor and their patient.

In his Aug. 31 news conference at the State Capitol, and again the following week in testimony before a committee of the U.S. Senate, Gov. Hickenlooper unveiled a “bipartisan plan” for improving the disastrous health care reform system dumped on the nation by very partisan Democrats in 2010. Yet, the “pragmatic proposals” put forward by Hickenlooper and his six partnering governors do not address many of the most serious problems created by the Affordable Care Act, known to its millions of victims as Obamacare.

Two proposed November ballot initiatives funded by deep pockets in the Denver business sector are making troublesome claims about Colorado having “1.3 million disenfranchised voters.” If true, this is a national civil rights scandal! Who are these alleged victims of discrimination? They are Colorado’s unaffiliated registered voters, the 34 percent of active registered voters who have chosen to not affiliate with one of Colorado’s five recognized political parties.

The Statesman’s June 9th “Hot Sheet” completely missed the point of Senate Bill 150. The article leads one to think the bill automatically turned all civil unions in Colorado into marriages. It also makes it sound like the Legislature has accepted the Supreme Court’s ruling that completely redefined the meaning of marriage. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, in the legislative declaration of Senate Bill 150 it states: “Senate Bill 16-150 is intended to remedy the complicated legal process of dissolving a civil union and a marriage for the same couple. The ultimate constitutional question of the United States supreme court’s constitutional jurisdiction and authority to redefine marriage in Colorado’s constitution through a ruling on certain individual cases in other states is a matter the general assembly may take up at a different time, but Senate Bill 16-150 does not address, nor settle that concern.”
