Bernie Sanders endorses Single Payer in Colorado

  • 0 Comments
  • by: wade norris

On August 24th, over 2500 house parties were held for Bernie Sanders’ new movement, Our Revolution, which would support over 100 candidates all over the country,

( I hope to be in that number)

and more importantly, 5 ballot measures in 5 states.

At my house party, we had one of the organizers for Colorado’s Amendment 69

or Single Payer / Public Option for Colorado.

Seth Meyers explains it quite well…

As Bernie read through the first 4 ballot measures, we all waited nervously,

then Bernie said

“and in the State of Colorado”

and the room erupted in applause!

WE did not even hear the rest!
But the Denver Post did:

“It is absurd, it is beyond belief, that here in America we remain the only major country on earth not to guarantee health care to all people,” Sanders said at the event, according to a news release from the pro-ColoradoCare campaign. “If that proposal can win in Colorado, I believe that idea will spread around the country.”

This is so important because like Saskatchewan, who introduced Single Payer to the Canadian Provinces, Colorado can be the test model for United States,

leading us to Single Payer — something now evidently necessary with

Blue Cross, United Healthcare, and now AETNA pulling out of

the Affordable Care Act.

Not to mention that EpiPens have had their prices jacked up with no consequence.

Despite the fact that here in Colorado, a few establishment Democratic groups have come out against this Amendment,

brave Democrats like Senator and Doctor, Irene Aguilar have stood with us.

and now, Bernie Sanders’ supporters will be the extra push in this state to get our country started on the path to providing a public option in healthcare just like every major country.

Thank you Senator Sanders!
