Response to otohara (Original post)

15. I voted yes on ColoradoCare knowing it was a flawed bill.

It was a symbolic vote. The bill lacked essential specifics. For example, just about everyone would be taxed 10% to cover CCare costs. However, as healthcare costs rise, logically taxes would increase to cover additional CCare costs. However, the bill did not specify how that certain development would be handled, leaving the door wide open for huge tax increases.

There were other problems with the bill, but in my view, this particular shortcoming was the deal breaker.
