Mark Hillman’s Capitol Review: Polis’ Health Care Plan Doesn’t Add Up

Like so many Bernie Sanders Democrats, governor candidate Jared Polis keeps making promises about health care that aren't backed up basic math. Recall that the Boulder congressman wants to put all Coloradans on Medicare, except that wealthy Coloradans (like Polis) can always buy their way into a better, private system.

This is the mantra that today animates the progressive/socialist wing of the Democratic Party. Never mind that Canada, where government provides "health care for all," just set a new record for longest delays as sick patients die while waiting for treatment.
