Can the business community count on Congress to fix our ridiculously complex and expensive health insurance system if we give it more time?

That is why the states must take the lead on health care reform.
Medicare, the system that covers all seniors age 65 and older, is simple, affordable, and comprehensive. Colorado can use the same approach for everyone under age 65 if we approve ColoradoCare, Amendment 69, this November.
