Amendment 63, which targets the mandate provisions of ObamaCare, will be on the ballot in November. Mike Krause describes what Amendment 63 will do if passed.
If approved by voters in November, Amendment 63 will amend Colorado’s Constitution in two meaningful ways. First, the State of Colorado would be prohibited from forcing its citizens to purchase a public or private health insurance product, either on its own, or on behalf of the federal government. Secondly, it would constitutionally protect fee-for-service health care by ensuring Coloradans the right to choose to pay out of pocket for health care services and products.
A Denver Post blog continues to push the fallacy that the state amendment is meaningless because it's superseded by Federal law. That's true when the Federal law is enacting measures in the Constitution but not otherwise. In fact, nullification has been successfully used before.
This would be great for Colorado if it passes.
