It’s amazing what Democrats try to get away with since most major news media is on their side. The latest surprise is a report showing that a Colorado Democratic Senator pressured the insurance division of Colorado to revise the numbers of cancellations due to Obamacare in order to make it appear less damaging.

U.S. Senator for Colorado Mark Udall is considered one of the weaker candidates for 2014, which might explain why he went out of his way to demand Obamacare cancellations were under-reported.

From Complete Colorado:

U.S. Senator Mark Udall’s office worked assiduously to revise press accounts that 249,000 Coloradans received health care cancellation notices. Because the 249,000 figure was produced inside the Colorado Division of Insurance, Udall’s office lobbied that agency to revise the figure, or revise their definition of what qualified as a cancellation.

From an email inside the Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI), Director of External Affairs Jo Donlin bluntly stated to her colleagues:


After explaining this to the Udall campaign and to Governor Hickenlooper, Donlin received a “hostile phone call” from Udall’s deputy chief of staff about the numbers that were damaging to both Obama and to Udall’s re-election campaign.

Add this to all the other scandals of the Obama administration and it makes one wonder how many other attempts were made to keep the truth of the Obamacare debacle away from the public in order to protect vulnerable Democrats like Udall in the 2014 election.
