Study Finds CO in Top Ten Most Expensive Insurance Markets due to ObamaCare
Rebuts Senator Mark Udall’s Claim that ObamaCare is Lowering Insurance Costs

DENVER – Americans for Prosperity – Colorado, the state’s leading opponent to implementing ObamaCare, is highlighting a Kaiser Permanente study which finds that Colorado is among the ten regions experiencing the highest health insurance premium increases. Senator Mark Udall, a vocal proponent of the President’s health care law, claims that the law will lower health insurance costs and strengthen the economy to create more jobs.

“Proponents of the law like Senator Mark Udall told us that ObamaCare would lower health insurance costs and allow our economy to create more jobs, yet the actual results have been exactly the opposite,” explained Dustin Zvonek, Colorado State Director of Americans for Prosperity. “It’s no wonder 60 percent of Coloradans oppose ObamaCare. Each week we learn new facts about how ObamaCare will reduce fulltime employment, cancel plans, and increase health insurance costs. Ads featuring keg standing bros aren’t going to change¬†anyone’s mind when faced with the hard facts of higher premiums and lower coverage.”

A Quinnipiac poll yesterday found that 60 percent of Coloradans do not support President Obama’s health care law. This past Wednesday, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reported that the law will reduce full-time employment by the equivalent of 2.5 million jobs.
