New emails released on Dem senatorís resistance to Obamacare cancellation numbers
Daily Caller ^ | 3/18/14 | Sarah Hurtubise

New emails have been released about whether Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall pressured a state agency to change its estimate of Obamacare cancellations.

Udall wanted the state Department of Insurance to downgrade its estimate of Obamacare-related insurance cancellations from 250,000 to just 73,000, because some Colorado residents were offered replacement plans.

After releasing his own estimate in November, Udall plunged the state government into a media storm involving Gov. John Hickenlooper’s communications director and the insurance commissioner, according to the newly released emails.

“Udall is broad brushing and assuming that because Anthem and Kaiser offered early renewals, the people who received that option after receiving a cellation [sic] notice should not be counted. Commissioner Salazar would like to tell Sen. Udall that 250,000 people were in fact affected by cancellation notices,” insurance department director of external affairs Jo Donlin wrote in November, according to the new release.

Insurance commissioner Alan Salazar even offered to have an employee “run interference” with Udall’s staff for Donlin. Although Salazar considered it “perfectly alright to communicate directly with their office,” it may be indication that the senator’s office was hostile.

Even if you accept the regime’s enrollment numbers at face value, we still have 1.5 million FEWER insured than before Obamacare. That’s a simple FACT, which dishonest morons like Udall either cannot or will not understand.

Another attempt by a Democrat to manipulate the people before the next election.

Just add it to the list: IRS attacks on the TeaParty, trying to blame Benghazi on a film maker, altering the law by executive order.

Oh, he understands it OK. He just knows that they were about helping the 45 million poor, suppressed uninsured -- their voters by and large -- and they made progress toward that end.

The fact that millions of others lost their policies is immaterial. Most of them weren't Democrat voters and, therefore, had it coming.

Udall is as political corrupt as they come, even by Colorado standards.

He should be one of the top 5 prime targets for political extinction this Fall, even by honest Democrats, all 3 of them.

You’re right. They’re constantly moving the goal posts and when they can’t score they’ll just say scoring isn’t important anyway.

I hope I live long enough to see a law in effect that prohibits saying the name “Obama”.

If the subscribers wanted different plans they would have found alternatives on their own. Obamacare forced the cancellations and made subscribers select alternative plans, if they were even available, under duress.

Top Cancer Centers Off-Limits Under Obamacare

Some of America’s best cancer hospitals are off-limits to many of the people now signing up for coverage under the nation’s new health care program.

Doctors and administrators say they’re concerned. So are some state insurance regulators. An Associated Press survey found examples coast to coast.

AP Excerpted. Go to the link to identify the top cancer treatment hospitals not covered.
