In about one week, the residents of Colorado will be deciding upon some major issues -- one of which is Amendment 63."It changes Colorado's bill of rights and adds one more right," said Jon Caldara on his talk show Monday, while filling-in for Mike Rosen. "What we are trying to do is create a sanctuary state for healthcare."Caldara, of the Independence Institute is the man behind Amendment 63.According to the Colorado Blue Book, Amendment 63 would:
- add health care choice as a constitutional right;
- prohibit the state from requiring or enforcing any requirement that a person participate in a public or private health coverage plan;
- restrict the state from limiting a person's ability to make or receive direct payments for lawful health care services.
