Vail Daily letter: ‘No’ on Amendment 69

Anyone in Colorado voting and receiving Social Security benefits and on Medicare would have to be insane to vote in favor of Amendment 69, even if you are in favor of universal health care for all. You already receive most of your medical for nothing and can cover almost 100 percent with moderate payment for supplemental insurance and Part D insurance. Requiring a payment of 10 percent of all sources of your gross income, including 10 percent of the Social Security benefit check you receive, is outrageous and unbelievable. Seniors and the self-employed are being hit hardest by this Amendment. Vote "no" on Amendment 69.
