It’s about accessibility (4/20/21) – The Denver Post

As a pediatrician, I see kids all the time who are struggling with their medical problems because they lack a safe location to live. This problem has gotten worse during the pandemic as people have had difficulty paying rent and are being evicted. I have multiple patients whose parents have been evicted during the pandemic. They’ve been forced to move from homeless shelter to homeless shelter to have a roof over their kids’ heads. Protect children from eviction One of my 12-year-old patients was living on the streets for two months last spring. At that time, she was unable to refill her inhaler prescription and ended up in the hospital after an asthma attack. Had she and her mom not been evicted from their apartment (after her mom lost her job), this hospitalization could have been avoided.

And that price will always be too high. Insurance, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies are almost all for-profit corporations, which means the only thing they’re interested in is their bottom line. It will never change as long as they can put a price on whether you live or die.

Jeanette Oxelson, Wheat Ridge The headline in Sunday’s paper was, “Is a public option the right answer?” But I’m more interested in the three little words just above that headline: “Affordable Health Care.” This country has not and will never have affordable health care of any kind — no matter what bills you put through congress — for one simple reason: greed.

As springtime lawns awake across Colorado, jury trials are resuming in earnest in places such as Cortez, Glenwood Springs and Denver. Courthouses are increasingly reopening to people looking for solutions to their problems. This is no small thing. These doors were physically shut for much of the global COVID-19 pandemic. With a few exceptions, in March 2020 — almost overnight — what had become commonplace and routine, going to justice centers for jury service or a case appearance, jolted to a halt. The familiar contours of the world that those of us who work in the courtroom knew disintegrated. Courtrooms awakening

Patrick Tiffany, Denver She and every other child in Colorado need safe places to live to have healthy and bright futures and one way to help them is to ensure they won’t be evicted if their parents are struggling with rent. Right now, the Colorado Senate is discussing a bill that would provide tenants who are unable to pay rent more time to find stable housing before a landlord can formally evict them. Call your state senator and urge them to support House Bill 1121 to keep our kids safe and healthy in their houses.
