For those of you who are keeping score, Gov. Polis’s Office of Saving People Money has failed spectacularly in more ways than one to actually save people money.
The latest blunder:
The Polis Administration’s “Office of Saving People Money on Health Care” is really doing a bang up job.

It’s important for Colorado voters to pay attention to this office led by Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera, for which we pay her an additional $75,000 a year, because she will be our acting governor once Polis gives up the charade and runs for president.
Presuming he wins reelection.
By our clock, that scenario will begin to play out after the November elections when Republicans take control of Congress, and begin hearings into the Biden family’s business dealings with the Chinese.
Shocking revelations will wipe out what’s left of Joe Biden’s memory, and he will take leave of the White House to live out his twilight years at a seaside mansion in Delaware on a billion dollar government pension, we’re guessing.
But we digress.
Primavera has done a rotten job of saving people money on health insurance, as evidenced by the fact our insurance costs keep increasing.
And yet, she would have us believe the opposite.
“We are setting a national precedent by offering more affordable coverage for our neighbors across the state,” said Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera, director of the Office of Saving People Money on Health Care. “I’m really proud of all the work that the Polis-Primavera administration has been able to accomplish to ensure access to high-quality and affordable health care for all Coloradans, including the Reinsurance Program and Colorado Option.”
She’s almost as delusional as Biden if she believes her own rhetoric.
The Colorado Sun has the recap of the damage done by Colorado’s dynamic duo:
As it is, the 11.3% average increase for the individual market is the largest since 2018, when prices jumped 27%. The biggest increases will likely be seen on the Eastern Plains and Western Slope, where insurers are proposing an average increase for individual market premiums of 21% and 19.2%, respectively.
Bright Health and Friday Health Plans are proposing the largest increases — 21% and 24.2%, respectively. Kaiser Permanente is not proposing an increase for its individual-market plans.
In the small group market, premiums are expected to increase statewide by an average of 9.2%.
Remind us, in what year and parallel universe did our health insurance rates actually go down after Obamacare was rammed down our throats by the Democrat party?
