Coloradans Agree:

Colorado's budget is already burdened

BILL RITTER

Governor, Democrat

The budget is already burdened with too many constitutional measures — let alone one of this cost and magnitude.

ColoradoCare would DOUBLE the state budget

WALKER STAPLETON

State Treasurer, Republican

The health care proposal "would literally double the state budget" and impose a new tax on working families.

Health care reform just got up and running in Colorado

JOHN HICKENLOOPER

Governor, Democrat

Our reforms are just beginning to bear fruit and it would be premature to dramatically remake our health care system at this time.

Amendment 69 would cost $25 billion per year. Almost doubling the current budget for the entire state of Colorado!! #NoOn69

FOUR REASONS

Amendment 69 is wrong for Colorado

Huge New Tax Burden.

Amendment 69 will raise $25 billion in new taxes to fund a massive government-run health care system—a figure that almost doubles the state budget. All Coloradans will pay into thus system giving Colorado the highest income taxes in the nation. Colorado can’t afford Amendment 69.

21-Member Board of Politicians Making Health Care Decisions for You.

ColoradoCare would be run by a 21-member Board of Trustees which would be exempt from recall and have no accountability to the Governor or legislature. The Board will be responsible for running a new $36 billion entity. Decisions about our health care are too important to leave to inexperienced, unaccountable politicians.

Another Complex Policy Embedded in Colorado’s Constitution.

This is yet another complex and costly amendment to our state’s constitution. And because this policy is embedded in our constitution it would be difficult to amend or change in the future. It is irresponsible to put another complex amendment into our state’s constitution.

Colorado should not be THE guinea pig

One state, tiny Vermont, led by a pro-single-payer Governor tried this. He abandoned the plan after it was clear it would bust the state budget and be too complicated for one state to administer. Coloradans should not have to risk their health care, their income, and our economic future, on a risky experiment that has never been implemented anywhere before.
