Preserving and protecting all Coloradan’s healthcare is my top priority. I believe that access to healthcare is a right, not a privilege. That every Coloradan should be able to make their own healthcare decisions that are free from judgment, systemic and economic barriers and political influence. The changing landscape of healthcare in our nation will have many direct and indirect effects on the accessibility and quality of care in Colorado. It is important that we remain aware of potential changes and respond to the needs of our people. We must fight for parity in physical and mental health benefits, and expand coverage for dental care, vision, hearing and other areas that impact overall health. I will continue to be the voice for the voiceless including seniors and people with intellectual or developmental disabilities. I will continue to advocate for lowering healthcare costs and fight to increase transparency of these prices so that Coloradans can protect themselves financial
In the weeks prior to the shut down at the State Capitol we had a general fund budget of $12.46 Bil . Our economy was one of the best in the nation. Then COVID forced us to deal with “Stay at Home” orders and we left the Capitol from mid March to mid May. When we returned for a three week marathon session, our budget was cut by $3.3Bil about 25% of our general fund, which meant all legislators postponed their bills to look at where the immediate need was for the citizens and state of Colorado. The tax revenue decreases made us readjust our budget to meet the immediate needs of our citizens and our state. We will also see more cuts in 2021 projected to be $1.6 Bil. These unprecedented times call for resilient and strong leadership in healthcare, business, government and across our community. All of us need to contribute to our recovery. Immediate relief for all community members and business owners is our number one priority.. I commend our Governor and our Director of Larimer
