Rep. Cory Gardner’s latest television ad tells the story of the 335,000 Coloradans who received healthcare cancellation notices because of Sen. Mark Udall’s support for Obamacare. Gardner’s family was among those whose health insurance was cancelled. They bought their plan off the open market like so many Coloradans and were not on the health insurance offered to members of Congress.
Sadly, Colorado families have not only lost their health insurance plans but also seen their premiums rise and lost access to their doctors. If Udall wants to talk about social issues, he needs to realize this is the real social issue of the 2014 campaign.
