Democrats Really Stepped In It This Time

Colorado Senator Mark Udall didn’t get the memo (penned by Alex Sink, no doubt): Standing up for Obamacare isn’t exactly a winning strategy for Democrats in 2014. In an interview with Colorado Morning News (on 850 KOA in Denver, where my Saturday radio show airs), Senator Udall said that given the opportunity he would vote for Obamacare again. Likely Republican nominee Congressman Cory Gardner is already running an ad featuring the Udall interview, letting the incumbent’s words speak for themselves.

Never one to miss parroting a DNC talking point, when asked about an Americans for Prosperity ad running in Colorado tying Udall to the health care law which “just doesn’t work,” Udall attacked the Koch brothers, saying the billionaire supporters of pro-liberty candidates “really don't have the interest of Coloradans in mind.” (Udall didn’t get this memo either.)

Given Udall’s near-perfect record of voting with the Obama administration, it seems that the Kochs care more about my family’s welfare than Mr. Udall does; Mark wasn’t satisfied with voting in favor of the president’s policies 96 percent of the time in 2012, so he upped it to 99 percent in 2013.

Almost responding to host Steffan Tubbs’ question whether Udall would “still cast that vote” for Obamacare, Udall, again reading from this week’s Democrat script, said “The law is far from perfect,” but when pushed again he did actually answer the question: “I would do it again. Yes, I would…I think, look, if I were there I would say here are some things that we should have done differently…”

One has to wonder what part of Udall’s “Yea” vote on Obamacare on December 24, 2009 would support his strange hypothetical, “if I were there.” Just where do you think you were, Mark? I mean, pot wasn’t even legal in Colorado in 2009.

    The Koch industries pump over $11 billion into the economy per year in jobs and benefits but the democrats (including MU) would be comfortable with losing that economic activity. The other day, I overheard a TA Travel Center mgr interviewing a girl for a job. She was explaining to her that they don't offer more than 28 hrs per week due to the new healthcare law. Another proud benefit of Obamacare (which MU would vote for again). Not too long ago, I had an eye emergency on a Sunday and called the eye surgeon I used last year. In 30 minutes I was in an exam (I payed cash for previous surgeries for a much lower rate). I couldn't help but think that if I had Obamacare that I may not have been able to keep my dr. as promised. Udall's election will be important to watch. If reelected, we have a long road ahead of us. Off topic but I was wondering if CNN will cover the missing $6 billion from the State Dept under Clinton as long and aggressively as the missing Malaysian plane.
