ColoradoCare hurts working families and small businesses.
To cover the $25 billion annual cost, Amendment 69 creates a new 10 percent tax on payroll earned in Colorado; and an additional 10 percent tax on any non-payroll income. That’s an unfair burden on hard-working middle class families and small businesses across our state.
Amendment 69 raises $25 billion per year in new taxes, though some analysts think it will cost more.
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.
This one program would nearly double the size of state government – while critical needs such as education and transportation still go unmet.
