'Blirb' from Vice Chair Roger Bentley


Dear Voters,

The American Dream has been taxed enough already. In recent years almost every election has ‘the old hand out question’. Nothing has changed, now a hospital is asking voters to give up another 2.7 million dollars per year. Oh, but for only 8 years! There are a lot of businesses that would like $2,700,000.00 annually. Currently property owners are forced to pay a portion of their property taxes to the Delta County Memorial Hospital. Delta County sales tax is 2.0% and 0.8 % is a 40% increase. The last paragraph on the ballot includes ‘earnings from the investment’. Sounds like ‘pork’ to me. Proponents are saying that ‘we’ can’t afford to lose ‘our’ hospital, but fiscal irresponsibility has led to ‘that substantial budget shortfall’. I am voting NO on Measure 6A.

Roger W. Bentley Republican who votes Republican!

Vote NO! Taxpayer monies will be funding a multi-million$ “Health Data Center” aka Track & Trace Dis-Ease Management for Big Pharma. Vote NO!

The last statement in the proposal for the tax increase is to exclude this tax from the provisions of the TABOR amendment to the Colorado constitution. This exclusion ALWAYS garners a ‘NO’ vote from me. TABOR requires that State funded entities do not grow their budgets faster than a combination of inflation and population growth. It is a good and necessary provision and should never be excluded. Period. John Copper

Your point is valid, no one wants to or likes to pay additional taxes, no matter the circumstances or seemly altruistic purposes. The overall fact is that Delta Health is a position that many independent rural hospital are finding themselves in. In large part its due to the pandemic we have all had to deal with. Delta Health is in need of our help to keep its independent status. Without it, they will fall prey to a corporate buy out. This will bring this Democrat run State government one step closer to a Single Payer system for the whole State! This initiative doesn't just effect the City of Delta and the citizens of its rural county, but I dare say…

Whoever you are.....you are very misinformed!! Have you bothered to follow this discussion on the Delta Message Board?? Have you seen the article in the DCI which "corrects" a rumor being propagated that the hospital is "going bankrupt. Actually, I was pleased that the CEO of the Hospital had the intestinal fortitude to admit the facts. AND also did you notice on the ballot that ALL of this Tax will be put into "the general fund" to be "used" at the BOD discretion??
