Former Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler was interviewed by Jimmy Sengenberger on Business for Breakfast this week to discuss the complaint filed against Jared Polis for some funny business in his financial disclosures.
Or lack of disclosure, it turns out.
Gessler explained why voters should care, while revealing that Polis could make himself even richer off the health care and energy policies the Democrat pledges to put into action.
We’ve wondered why Polis was apparently willing to just blow $19 million to win the governor’s race.
Now we may have the answer: The millionaire might not be content until he’s a billionaire. After all, money doesn’t go as far as it used to.
It’s not just that Polis held back critical financial information when he filed to run for governor, yet disclosed it to the feds in his congressional filings, it’s what he’s not telling us.
He didn’t tell us about the millions he’s invested in BridgeHealth, a health tourism company that has benefited tremendously under Obamacare, and would get a second boom in Colorado if Polis mucked it up even worse with some sort of single-payer system.
The whole idea of health care tourism, is when someone can’t afford a certain surgery or treatment in the U.S. under Obamacare, companies like BridgeHealth will help them fly to another country to get their health needs cheaper.
Say your deductible is $6,000 and you need a procedure that costs $5,500 in the U.S. or $1,500 in Mexico, which would you choose? A health care travel company, that’s who.
Then there’s Polis’s holdings in solar companies and his pledge to unplug us in the coming years, no matter the cost — to us.
As Gessler explained, Polis has a lot of explaining to do to the voters before Election Day, and that’s the purpose of the complaint he filed on behalf of Kristina Cook, Denver GOP treasurer.
Voters need to have this information to determine whether Polis is “just another politician lining his pockets,” Gessler said.
Listen to the whole interview here, and determine for yourself whether Polis is a walking conflict of interest who stands to make a fortune off the policies he’s promising if elected governor.
Or, he just can’t afford to hire competent accounts to declare all of his holdings, including $10 to $50 million in medical tourism.
