“ColoradoCare is a killer” campaign launched by Advancing Colorado
DENVER—Advancing Colorado launched a digital campaign, “ColoradoCare is a killer,” featuring a petition and digital ads on Facebook and Google, targeting Amendment 69, also known as ColoradoCare. The free market group spearheaded the opposition to the constitutional amendment in May this year and has been actively educating Coloradans at the grassroots level and has continued leading the effort against the proposal. The campaign provides resources for Coloradans to contact state Sen. Irene Aguilar, D-Denver, to express their opposition to her support of this proposal and continued effort to take away their health care freedom of choice.
“We are ramping up our efforts against the total government-takeover of health care because it is a matter of life and death for Coloradans,” said Jonathan Lockwood, executive director of the free market advocacy group. “ColoradoCare will put unelected bureaucrats in between Coloradans’ and their doctors, restrict choice and take away our rights to freedom in health care. The ColoradoCare campaign has been deceptive from the beginning and they are signaling to only get worse in their attempts to take away the rights of Coloradans, it’s sick and must not go without considerable challenge and accountability.”
ColoradoCare proposes a single-payer health care system at the annual cost of at least $25 billion-a-year from income taxes. The ColoradoCare proposal sets up a 21-member board to oversee the new health care system and exempts the new system from the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR).
From the digital campaign’s landing page featuring the petition:
“ColoradoCare will require a $25 billion dollar annual income tax hike to create government health care exempt from the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR).
ColoradoCare will restrict choice and freedom in health care, hurt businesses, Millennials and our most vulnerable communities.
The rationed care that would come as a result of ColoradoCare could lead to the loss of real human lives.
Amendment 69, ColoradoCare, will kill Colorado.”
