Taxpayer-Funded Universal Health Care Plan Qualifies for November 2016 Colorado Ballot
Colorado residents next year will vote on a ballot measure that would opt the state out of the Affordable Care Act and implement a taxpayer-funded universal health care system. Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams on Monday announced that supporters of the initiative had gathered enough signatures to qualify the measure to be placed on the ballot for the November 2016 election. If the initiative is successful, Colorado could become the first state to opt out of the ACA by implementing statewide universal health coverage.
