UDALL GOES BIG: 2013 Wastebook Reveals Obamacare’s Outsized Cost
Colorado Peak Politics ^ | December 17, 2013

You’ve got to hand it to Senator Udall, when he lies to Coloradans and blows through taxpayer funds, he does it while lighting a huge pile of money on fire.

Senator Tom Coburn’s just-released “2013 Wastebook puts the – still rising— costs at $1.063 Billion dollars for the set-up ($319 million) and advertising ($684 million) of the federal and state Obamacare websites. Just under $44 million of the former has come to Colorado to set up our own website; which leaves us here at the Peak wondering: what exactly did they use the rest of the $43.5 million on?

Shamefully, this begins to look like a bargain, especially when the Colorado exchange ads were so bad they got their own shout-out in the Wastebook


The exchange spent $20 million to get 4,000 enrolled so far? At $5,000 per enrollee, it’d just been cheaper to use the advertising budget to buy them all health insurance.

The Udalls have given the Kennedy clan a run for wasting our money.

Hope someone is keeping track of where all the corruption is coming from and going to. Laying out that story “follow the money” style ought to win some elections for truth-tellers at the state level.

RATs hate having the spotlight shined on their nasty deeds.

Someone suggested a couple of days ago that it would be even easier to defeat Udall in 2014 if you can find a good, Conservative Mormon to run against him.
