Colorado news roundup: Editorial: No good would come from repealing health reform

Yes, some politicians are still talking about repealing federal health reform. And yes, it's puzzling why they would want to restore insurance companies' ability to exclude people with pre-existing conditions. Or why they would want to permit insurance companies to drop people who get sick. Or why they would want to re-establish lifetime caps on coverage. Or why they would want to restore the Medicare prescription drug donut hole, making medicine less affordable for seniors.

An editorial in today's Aurora Sentinel makes a strong case for supporting the reforms enacted in March and, indeed, perhaps accelerating some of the changes. Find a link to the piece along with links to all the day's public-policy news at the weekday Colorado news roundup.
