First of all, I heard that Vermont tried this “exact same thing” in their state, and it went bankrupt (failed). What, if any, differences are there between the failed Vermont plan and the proposed Colorado plan that would help to prevent the same result in Colorado? Secondly, my husband works full time, I am self-employed and work part time. Would the taxes be out of our combined household income or just out of his? Would I have to pay the “employer” amount as well as the “individual”? Also, would the tax amount the same regardless of number of children?
An Amendment to upgrade the state of Colorado to universal health care is a pretty big deal.
