It was just announced this past week that in Colorado the expected wait time to get an office visit is 18 days which is 4x higher than the national average.  Throughout the 13 hospitals and clinics that make up the Eastern Colorado Health Care System, the average wait for a primary care appointment as of July 1 was more than 12 days. Only Amarillo, Texas, and Palo Alto, Calif. — both smaller than ECHCS — were worse.  This is unacceptable!  It is time for our state legislatures to pass laws that start protecting our current and past military members and hold responsible those who are running a failed system.  We must bring accountability back and protect those who have protected us! I would like to see our vets off the streets and reconnecting through society through local mentorship programs, rehabilitation programs, and trade-skilled work programs giving them the opportunity to succeed after service.
