Defend Colorado from Obamacare

Posted by on Dec 30 2009 | Health Care

Help Colorado opt-out of Obamacare!!  I’m calling for an amendment to the Colorado Constitution that would opt Colorado out the onerous health insurance mandates coming out of Washington DC.

Show your support for this idea by joining Defend Colorado today!  Colorado has a right to decide how we choose to deal with health care and it is my goal to make sure that Washington doesn’t jam Obamacare down the throats of us Coloradans. Check out the Denver Post‘s take on my announcement.

How you can help…

    I regularly watch Independent Thinking and listen to your radio show whenever I’m driving at night. (I can’t get radio shows to play on my computer. I think the dial-up connx is just too slow.) When the petitions are ready I will carry them. Thanks for doing this.

    I find it interesting that the Independence Institute has continued to be vocal on Obamacare and yet has remained silent in regards to the increased government involvement in the Colorado medical marijuana industry. As a libertarian, I would imagine Mr. Caldara would be fully on board with limiting the amount of legal restrictions put on medical marijuana – especially considering his stance on the expansion of mandates and regulations on our healthcare industry. However, Mr. Caldara and the Independence Institute have avoided one of Colorado’s hottest debates to focus strictly on conservative pet peeves like universal healthcare, climate change and Barack Obama. Why is that? Is the Independence Institute worried it may ostracize it’s conservative audience by supporting the deregulation of medical marijuana? Or does it support more government regulation in this industry – a stance that would contradict the very core beliefs of Caldara and the institute. Unfortunately, we in Colorado don’t know because either Mr. Caldara has been too unwilling or too afraid to discuss it.
    It’s time the Independence Institute take a stand on either side of the medical marijuana debate and show how independent it truly is.
