DENVER There are nearly 250,000 Coloradans whose health care policies have been or will be cancelled as a result of the Affordable Care Act, the states Dept. of Insurance announced on Wednesday.
So far, just 3,408 Coloradans have purchased new insurance plans on the exchange; many more, 34,168 Coloradans, have enrolled in Medicaid since the program expanded under the law.
To have almost a hundred health plan cancellations for every exchange sign up in Colorado under Obamacare is exponentially worse than even the most extreme skeptic could have predicted, said Kelly Maher, executive director of the group Compass Colorado.

Not to worry, they are getting better ones. LOL!
They were apparently mizeled by President Mizeled too.
Somebody is going to have to pay for all those newcomers to Medicare.
Wonder what the national total is now? I predicted 10 million by the weekend.
Anybody keeping a running total of these?
I have a cousin in Boulder. She is the breadwinner with husband and kids. Their health insurance was cancelled. She is one pissed off person right now.
I watched RedEye last night too. Pretty funny. Thanks for posting that — I woke up this a.m. and I couldn’t remember what the word was that she fouled up so badly.
Watching the Clipper/Magic game & seems the White Hut hitting all the sports channels. Anyway, a Covered California commercial just came on & no joke, at then end under the logo says “Financial Assistance Avaiable”. Assitance from the taxpayers, us!! Un-freakinbelievable.
Hey Colorado, now you have a real reason to get high, to forget about your super high premiums..I wonder how many of those people with canceled plans voted for Mr I Dont Know Anything Obama
Ping for later
I’ve thought all along that more people would lose their insurance than would be those getting it for the first time.
And these were the ones that were trying to be responsible for their lives. No wonder Obama hates them
Saw that same commercial, actually saw it twice today, almost hurled(Yeah it takes a lot for me to hurl) people who will sign up for that program are here illegally anyway..paid for by us the Taxpayer
Wow and the hits keep coming. I think by Nov. 2014, there will be a hell of people across the US pissed off. =)
The states that didn’t expand Medicare are the ones who will come out ahead, if that is possibly in this fiasco. In three years, when the Feds. stop picking up the tab for the expanded Medicare enrollees...those states r going to be hurting. Too many lazy, unwilling to work people on Medicaid, and now more signing up. Trust me, I personally know several. Future lifelong Democrat voters.
I don’t have insurance and I have no intention of selling everyone else’s kids into slavery.
It’s MediCAID, not Medicare, which Obamacare was supposed to make the States expand. They are separate programs.
But the Supreme Court said they didn’t have to, so 26 states aren’t doing it.
I often wonder if my young Granddaughters will have to be stitching the brown shirts and jackboots, or wearing them.
Medicaid, not Medicare
Sorry to sound nitpicky but we have to use the correct terms if we’re going to speak to others about this fiasco.
Good thing they legalized pot, eheheheh. Need some kind of medicine although those idiots just voted to tax their own pot. Idiots...... sorry you conservative Coloradans.
They’re just uhhhh .. ‘transitioning’.
The other fringe benefit for those states is people eligible for expanded Medicaid eligibility can move to them. I hope these are states that need more poor people who are looking for something for nothing.
On another thread, there was an article saying the voters of CO just voted for a tax on marijuana.
250,000 thousand people losing insurance in Colorado is 4% of the total population of Colorado.
That’s a high percentage, it’s alarming and a very bad sign of things to come.
I apologize. I do know the difference, my fault.
It may be the one gem the Supreme Court gave us. I am so glad my State didn’t do it, Oklahoma.
: fro·ward (frwrd, -rd) adj. Stubbornly contrary and disobedient; obstinate.
As in contrary, disobedient and obstinate to the Constitution and the Republic of these United States.
Yea, but are they blaming insurance companies, as is some of my liberal relatives.
Sorry to say the Coloradans are getting what they voted for! Won’t be long before they will be kissing cousins to Californians.
Well, gee, now DeGette is jumping on the obama lie-through-your teeth bandwagon too. The cancellations have nothing to do with “contractual obligations” and everything to do with the fact that KommieKare has simply outlawed all of those plans, thus forcing their cancellation. Diane knows all of this of course, which means, like Obama and all of the other lying Rats, her lies are knowingly and egregiously false, not simply a matter of ignorance.
No surprise about DeGette lying. She’s a Commie of the first order.
...am I supposed to feel sorry for these people?
People who complain are racist. Democrats told me that just last month.
No, transplants from those northeast and rust belt states voted for Obama. The states that lost congressional seats due to fleeing population. Lots of left coasters too. A native Coloradan is an endangered species.
We have been Californicated by incoming progressives, just like California was 30 years ago.
Texans, you are next.
All those Obama voters that cheered on the destruction of this country with ObamaCare are the ones screaming the loudest. We warned people of the consequences of ObamaCare. We warned them specifically of these results, specifically. Yet, they voted for Obama twice.
This country has become too stupid to live. Prepare for a violent end as this will explode in everyone’s faces.
yeah, but if IIRC, that’s for the bottomless pit called public schools.
Comments after the article are great.
Very scary but possibly true, unfortunately. Are we all doomed! Our population influx is not looking so Conservative. Time to move?
