CBSA Perspective: "As deficit talks drag on, fears over cuts mount"

Quoting from the article by Ed Sealover in today's Denver Business Journal:

"Key Colorado industries are watching federal debt ceiling negotiations closely, because some of the cutbacks being discussed in Washington could reduce or eliminate programs upon which they rely.

The Colorado Bioscience Association (CBSA), for example, fears long-term repercussions if funding to the Medicare Part D program is slashed. And the Colorado Hospital Association (CHA) is worried that the federal government could dismantle a state program that’s enrolled 36,000 people in Medicaid."

Holli Riebel, Steve Orndorff and Tim Rodell are quoted from the CBSA.
