A: I’m on a Medicare Senior Advantage plan that requires no monthly premiums. I only pay the required $104 taken out of my Social Security automatically every month. Would I be required to pay the 10% tax on my non-payroll (retirement annuity and Social Security)? If so, why would I vote for this when I would be required to pay well over $3000 a year in taxes that I will not benefit from? I am on a fixed income and wouldn’t be able to afford to pay that tax, especially getting nothing in return for it.

An Amendment to upgrade the state of Colorado to universal health care is a pretty big deal.
