Today In Poorly Chosen Republican Words

  • 3 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Last week, Colorado House Minority Leader Hugh McKean elicited more than a few groans for his pledge on a local AM radio show that the “Colorado Option” bill to bring down the cost of health care for consumers would be “the hill we,” meaning Republicans in the Colorado General Assembly, “die on.”

Which is, we should all be able to agree, an ironic way to talk about health care.

Not to be outdone, Minority Leader McKean’s communications staff fired off a stomach-churning and even darker analogy of their own today on the very same subject:

This Tweet was deleted after an hour or so this morning, and that seems appropriate since again, we’re talking about health care and not people dying on hills or having bullet holes in them. With respect to bullet holes in particular, we’ve had quite enough discussion of that in Colorado these past few weeks to tide us over a long, long time. Which leads to the next logical question…

What the hell is wrong with these people?

  1. If Democrats are trying to put a bandaid over a bullet hole, Republicans are looking at the bullet hole in order to _______________.   [Fill in the blank.]

    I've not read of Colorado Republicans doing anything to make medical school or other training for health care professionals less expensive.  They are not supportive of using government money to build or maintain hospitals, care centers or emergency medical transport.  I don't recall them supporting the ACA, expanding Medicare, or developing any affordable state-supported health insurance. The one Republican "cost-saving" measure I know of is limiting medical liability litigation — which COULD put a damper on "defensive medicine" costs.
