Supporters hope that if Amendment 69, known as ColoradoCare, passes, other states will follow.Socialism, state by state?
“The way to get here is state by state,” according to T.R. Reid, spokesman for ColoradoCare and author of “The Healing of America.”
“That’s how we got female suffrage, child labor laws, interracial marriage, marijuana. One state does it and the other states see that it works and it spreads.”
Proponents believe Colorado is the perfect testing ground for this issue because its constitution is far easier to amend than most other states. They cite the passage in 2012 of an amendment legalizing recreational marijuana despite the opposition of nearly every elected official in the state.
“People trust us to take ideas and make them work,” Reid said, “and we can make this work and then the whole country will finally provide health care for everybody.”
