The Campaign Cost of ColoradoCare

Another hotly contested item on this week’s Colorado ballot is Amendment 69, widely referred to as ColoradoCare. This amendment to the state constitution would implement a state-wide, single payer healthcare system based on funds derived from a 10% income tax. A 21-member board would govern the administration of ColoradoCare,  who’s members would vote for candidates to serve on the co-op’s board and decide whether taxes should be increased to provide additional funding to the program.

Almost $5 million has been raised in contributions to the  opposition and support committees, making this yet another expensive campaign on this Tuesday’s ballot. See where these expenses are coming from, as well as other cost breakdowns of the campaign for Amendment 69. myproject-1
