Lorne Levy with Polygon Financial is Kim’s first guest of the day. Lorne discusses the mortgage rate reductions in the past week. It never hurts to make a phone call to see if now is the time to refinance or to purchase a home. If you mention you are a listener of Kim’s, Lorne will provide a free home appraisal. Lorne’s contact information is: 303-880-8881 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kim welcomes Sue Moore from the Republic Liberty Caucus of Colorado to discuss HB20-1349, Colorado Affordable Health Care Option. This bill will have a massive negative effect on the state’s economy if it is signed into law. Essentially, the state will request a waiver from the Affordable Care Act, and if granted, this bill will stand. It limits reimbursement to hospitals, and shifts costs to the privately insured. Additionally, it will force insurance companies to cover all counties, which will most likely drive them out of Colorado and the state will run all healthcare. Remember, price controls will always give you less choice. HB20-1355 and its sister bill HB20-1356 are related to gun storage and lost guns, and are punishing upstanding citizens as criminals if they don’t comply.
Heather Lahdenpera joins Kim to alert listeners on SB20-163, School Entry Immunization. This bill redefines religious and personal vaccinations to non-medical exemptions. In order to receive a non-medical exemption, a family will have to either get a doctor’s signature to grant the vaccine exemption or take a re-education online survey where they will receive a certificate that must be given to the child’s school before entering school. Heather doubts that doctors will sign the exemption. Remember two things: pharmaceutical companies are exempt from any liability regarding vaccines and all decisions regarding vaccinations going forward will be made state unelected bureaucrats. Additionally, the data collected will be part of your child’s file for life, and who knows who might get a hold of it. Read Kim’s op-ed for further information on this bill and why we must voice our opposition.
