What’s good enough for Obama is good enough for Udall

DENVER (November 14, 2013)— Today, President Obama announced a plan that would allow Americans to keep their plans for one year, a plan supported by U.S. Senator Mark Udall.

“The President’s announcement comes as no surprise,” said Kelly Maher, executive director of Compass Colorado.  “He realizes the high political risks for Democrat senators up for reelection in 2014, including Senator Udall.  Like Obama, Senator Udall expended a great deal of political capital trying to force the passage of this legislation. Udall even toured the state echoing the President’s words that if we liked our health care coverage we could keep it. Now, Udall continues to let the President tell him what’s best, instead of listening to Coloradans.”

Senator Udall, who hasn’t held a town hall since July, pulled his own bill yesterday that would have allowed people to keep their health plans for two years.
