Hey there. In a time when we are inundated with negative news and altered news, this is a different kind of news: wonderful news.

How cool. Turns out this could expand across all Big Insurance Companies who are experiencing a windfall of profits in light of a cancellation of services.

So, if you’re feeling a financial pinch and could use the extra funds, feel free to contact (see right) the Colorado Insurance Commissioner. Their job is to protect Coloradans from Insurance Issues.
