Desperate people do desperate things. In this case, Senator Mark Udall asked the state's insurance commission to downplay the number of policy cancellations by changing the definition of "cancelled."
CompleteColorado.com reports that emails show U.S. Senator Mark Udall's (D-CO) office pressured the Colorado Division of Insurance to downplay the number of insurance cancellations caused by the rollout of ObamaCare. A full 249,199 Colorado citizens were victimized by ObamaCare's cancellations. According to the emails, Udall's office hoped to change the definition of a "cancellation" as a way to lower the number. All of this occurred late last year as the storm around cancellations was engulfing Democrats and the president.
From an email inside the Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI), Director of External Affairs Jo Donlin bluntly stated to her colleagues:
Sen. Udall says our numbers were wrong. They are not wrong. Cancellation notices affected 249,199 people. They want to trash our numbers. I'm holding strong while we get more details. Many have already done early renewals. Regardless, they received cancellation notices.

Hope the CO voters will remember this in November.
What else does anyone expect from a RAT?
The MSM will be all over this story ... as soon as they finish investigating Christie about the bridge ...
This is to be expected from a Democrat. They are our enemy. That said, we have other enemies in our political system, too. They are called RINOs and the entire Congress is infested with them.
Yes, and the infection is all over the US Government.
NO, they don’t like us very much either. But that is OK.
Such is the MSM. Liars protecting Obozo and his minions.
All in keeping with the “Hope & Change” mantra.
Change the definition, and Hope no one finds out about it.
So for the people who actually had their insurance cancelled by Obamacare..does changing a definition actually bring affordable insurance back??
Libs are so..
No, the only way out of this mess is repeal of the law. And then, the damage is already done.
No definition can legally amend the law without Congress. And it will never be considered by the House.
Checkmate, until actual collapse. My guess, some time in November 2014.
I have mixed emotions about that. I’m glad they’re taking the stapled-stomach fat boy down for behaving like Obastard.
Colorado Ping ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
Yep, CO Peak Politics I believe reported this several days ago.
I saw them listed when I tried to find similar articles on the web. But I did not notice the date then.
On second look and thought don’t thank me yet.. Hehe. That “old” Udall article was likely about his support for ObamaCare. The article you posted here is timely:
What a surprise...
Apparently, only the President can change this law, as he has done some 15 times already.
