Skip to comments.Udall proposal would let people keep current healthcare plans for two years ( Colorado )
Posted on 11/14/2013 6:31:08 AM PST by george76
As Democrats on Capitol Hill are growing increasingly angry with the White House over problems with Obamacare and increasingly uneasy about their individual fortunes heading into 2014 Colorado Sen. Mark Udall Wednesday became the latest Democratic lawmaker to introduce legislation to change the beleaguered Affordable Care Act...
With support building for a plan introduced by Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-Louisiana, that would allow people mislead by the presidents promise to keep their plans to actually do so indefinitely, Udall has come up with a scaled down version that would allow policyholders to keep their current plans, being cancelled under the new law, for two years.
Like Landrieu, Udall faces reelection in 2014 .. Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Arkansas, who also signed onto her bill.
state Rep. Amy Stephens of Monument.. who is leading the field when it comes to sending out the most anti-Obamacare press releases, brushed off Udalls proposal as a transparent ploy to save his job.
Sen. Udalls legislation is nothing more than a phony political ploy that will only temporarily delay insurance cancellations instead of actually stopping them ...
When Sen. Udall promised Coloradans they could keep their health insurance, he didnt put a time stamp on it, but today, he offers a half measure that is simply insufficient and politically motivated. Its clear that Mark Udall is more interested in putting off the disastrous consequences of Obamacare until after his re-election campaign instead of actually standing up for Colorado families, which requires repealing this law and replacing it.

The Get Us Safely Through The Next Election Cycle and To Hell With What Comes After Bill
Two years is just another slap in the face. This thing needs to be repealed forever.
AMEN!!! If the republicans fall for this, what can I say??!!
SO IOW the black curtain will still be an overhang on the economy! Great thinking!/s
The Democratic Senators are in a terminal state. More bad legislation that will never pass won’t save them.
Then let insurance go back to being private.
This is BS rope a dope. Those plans DO NOT EXIST anymore. The insurers got their part of the deal with which they were bribed: getting rid of the low revenue plans. In return, the did not fight against O care. So, they are not going to reinstitute those plans, EVER.
Meanwhile, wait till O care knocks out the group plans next year. DC is going to look like it did during the War of 1812.
They can’t keep their plans. Many of those insurers closed shop in some states.
So, Democrats, this is an admission that indeed, Obamacare IS responsible for all the cancellations, right? Just wanna make sure we’re all admitting reality for a change.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
But this would mean that those great sexy ads would go to waste!
No matter what, CO people will always flock to Udall.
Forever, or never.
And stop telling insurance companies what they can and can’t offer.
This would get the Democrats through the next election and they would rape us a little later.
The DUmmies are only worried about the next election cycle to trick the low information fools, again.
That is also why they delayed the ACA employer mandate for one year.
A big problem is voter fraud.
Udall would lose if only Colorado citizens voted.
Too many illegals and dead people vote by mail too often.
I cannot wait to vote for Ken Buck. If the GOPe doesn't run attack ads against him, he might win.
If you like your current plan, you can keep it. Period. Until after MY next election. That’s a pretty stupid law to pass, particularly stupid for the GOP if they let the far left fringe off the hook. They should once again vote to repeal ObamaCare, and then let the Dems and Dem voters live with the consequences of this terrible, 100% Dem law.
Two years, lets hope Udall is not around by then.
Idiotic attempts to apply a band aid for a dismembered limb.
ACA deemed the policies unlawful. The states and insurance companies complied.
