>> now you know. republican senate candidate, darryl glenn, joined us on next yesterday. you canee the full interview on our facebook page, and michael bennett will be joining us soon. we are hosting a debate for both of them october 11, 7:00 p.m. on channel 20 and 9news.com. a 1-hour debate, moderated by politics guy, brandon rittiman and yours truly. should be good. get your popcorn. the big money opponents of colorado care are running ads universal health care plan is a dumb idea. brandon rittiman dropped some truth on the ads. >> the ad comes from a group called coloradans for coloradans, that is the actual name of the no-campaign, funding from health insurance and health care companies who oppose the new system. we can say they are calling colorado care dumb because they compare it, well, to this.
6:06 pm
take amendment 69, for example, it would raise our taxes by $25 billion a year. >> that is true, but it also needs some context. the dollar amount of the tax increase is correct. but the ad doesn't tell you you are paying the tax instead of whatever you pay today for health insurance. for some workers, the tax would actually be cheaper than the insurance premiums they pay. you can read details on how much on 9news.com. >> double the size of state government. >> that is true because health care is expensive. adding health coverage to state government does cost about the same as everything else the state government does already. >> and give colorado the highest income taxes in the country. >> that depends. for instance, non-wage money earned off investments, being self employed or retirement income above $20,000 would we
