Coffman: “Effective date” of Obamacare repeal will be “about two years out” due to negotiations with industry and Democrats
U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) made headlines after he told constituents this week that it could take several years for Republicans to come up with an Obamacare replacement and, when they unveil their plan, it will “leave some people behind, one way or the other,” as first reported by the Colorado Independent.
Asked by a conservative radio host this morning to “characterize his current relationship with President Trump and his team” and whether Gardner was a “persona non grata,” U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) said:
CBS4 Political Reporter Shaun Boyd touched a nerve when she reported Jan. 27 that U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) thinks many of the calls and emails he’s gotten lately have been from “paid protesters.”
U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) has called for an investigation of the FBI, after a phone call recorded by the intelligence agency led to the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Progressives were likely shocked to read Charles Buchanan’s recent post about a Republican, who’s running for GOP vice chair of El Paso county, who actually walked out of church when his priest apparently made critical comments about Trump’s ban.
Colorado Treasurer Walker Stapleton will not say if he’s running for governor next year because, if he did so, “any common sense you’re trying to make when it comes to legislation goes completely out the window and people reflexively don’t want to have anything to do with you.”
Asked by a conservative talk-radio host whether U.S. Senators have private discussions with U.S Supreme Court nominees about cases like Roe v. Wade, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) said Thursday they “absolutely occur,” but Gardner dodged a follow-up question about whether he’d discussed Roe with Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s high court nominee.
