Free Preventive Care Is Not Really Free

Colorado’s junior senator, Micheal Bennet, has made health care reform a major priority during his time in Washington, and has campaigned tirelessly for stronger consumer protections and expanded access to health insurance.  Since Colorado is so divided in terms of political views and opinions on health care reform, Bennet’s stance has won him both enemies and friends.
