Colorado will begin charging an Obamacare tax next month on all health insurance policies — even those obtained through private employers — to help prop up the state's struggling health care exchange.
Frustration with Colorado's shaky health care exchange erupted Monday after the program's board voted to award a five-figure bonus to the CEO even as members consider raising fees in order to keep up with costs.
The last major opponent to Rep. Cory Gardner is bowing out of the Republican Senate primary.
A national tea party group endorsed state Sen. Owen Hill on Monday and began airing ads supporting the young lawmaker in the crowded Republican primary to challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Udall.
"They're going to continue to nickel and dime us to death when we have a hurting economy and people are struggling," said Mr. Hill. "Now they're trying to take another $13 million from working Colorado families because they can't get their act together and stay on budget."
"They're so tight on money that they're talking about doing a $13 million unconstitutional tax on health insurance plans," said Mr. Hill. "This [fee] is going to hit every Coloradan, whether you buy through the exchange or not. So they're taxing Coloradans $13 million because they're in such dire financial straits, yet they're giving the CEO of their broken system another $14,000 a year?"
