The survey of more than 1,200 likely Colorado voters favored Gardner 48 to 40 percent to the incumbent Udall, with independent, or unaffiliated, candidate Steve Shogan taking home 8 percent.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mike McFadden said the withdrawal of the largest insurer from MNsure, the state’s health care exchange, is evidence of the Affordable Care Act’s failure, blaming President Obama and his opponent, Sen. Al Franken, for enacting what he called a broken system.
PreferredOne was the top-selling insurer on MNsure, but its CEO said they’d be pulling out of the exchange, saying their participation was “not sustainable.” PreferredOne insured six out of 10 MNsure consumers who now will have to seek out other providers and may result in higher healthcare premiums.

Congress is back from its 5 week recess this week and there’s a lot of work to be done to help get our economy moving again.
This is particularly true in Harry Reid’s do-nothing Senate which has accomplished next to nothing over the last six years in terms of supporting hiring and economic growth.
Instead of working to get our economy back on track, the Senate has consistently stood in the way of job creation, focusing on raising taxes, increasing the regulatory burden on small businesses, preventing common sense solutions to Obamacare, and blocking energy projects like the Keystone XL Pipeline.
It’s time for Harry Reid and his do-nothing Senate to get back to work on behalf of the American people. So, we put together a short to-do list for them.
