AFP: Will Udall Stand Up for Coloradans Against New Tax?

Jun 10, 2014 by AFP

DENVER – Americans for Prosperity – Colorado is asking Senator Udall to stand up for Coloradans against a $13 million new healthcare tax being imposed on Coloradans by the state health insurance exchange, Connect for Health Colorado. The tax will fund the exchange but is imposed on all Coloradans with health insurance, whether it is purchased on the exchange, individually, or provided by an employer.

“It’s time for Senator Udall to decide whether he is going to side with Coloradans or ObamaCare and the well-heeled bureaucrats running the state exchange,” explained Dustin Zvonek, Colorado State Director of Americans for Prosperity. “Senator Udall was the deciding vote for ObamaCare and has continued to back ObamaCare even as the law costs Coloradans more money and cancels their health insurance plans. His silence is deafening and speaks volumes about where his real priorities lie.”

Connect for Health Colorado CEO Patty Fontneau enjoys a generous salary of over $195,000, after receiving a substantial bonus and raise this year.
