Universal Health Care Initiative Shot Down In Colorado

The measure would have eliminated most private health insurance in the state and replace it with a taxpayer-funded cooperative known as ColoradoCare. Media outlets report on other health care related ballot initiatives out of California, Oklahoma and Nevada.

Denver Post: ColoradoCare Measure Amendment 69 Defeated Soundly

Amendment 69, the ballot measure known as ColoradoCare that would have created a universal health care system in Colorado, was soundly defeated Tuesday night. At 8:30 p.m., with nearly 1.8 million votes counted across the state, the amendment was trailing 79.6 percent to 20.4 percent, according to preliminary state figures. Throughout the campaign, the measure had polled better with Democrats than Republicans. But even in left-leaning Denver, the amendment was losing 2-to-1, according to early returns. (Ingold, 11/8)
