9. It couldn't have anything to do with the actual insurance companies...

The most represented industry was health insurance: Dozens of insurance companies, including Anthem, Centura, Cigna and Kaiser Permanente, denounced the amendment.


Who Paid For It?
Pro-Amendment 69 committee ColoradoCare Yes was outspent 5 to 1 by the opposition, Coloradans for Coloradans.

The opposition raised almost $4.1 million and spent just under $4 million.

The opposition, Coloradans for Coloradans, received the majority of its funding from insurance companies, including Anthem, Kaiser Permanente, United Healthcare Services and Centura Health.


Insurance companies didn't want universal healthcare? Who would have thought!? The same people who didn't want the ACA.
