The following transcript is from U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner’s Tuesday appearance on Colorado’s Morning News (KOA, 850am) with host April Zesbaugh. Certain quotes have been highlighted by the Colorado Times Recorder:
Affordable Care Act
VIDEO: Constituents turned away at Coffman’s office, told via intercom to leave letters for Coffman by the door
Following a rally Tuesday at the office of U.S Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) in Aurora to oppose the House GOP tax plan, multiple people attempting to meet with Coffman’s staff and deliver tax-related notes written by rally-goers were turned away and asked to leave the notes outside the door.
U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has yet to comment on Trump’s latest effort to deliver a body blow to Obamacare by eliminating insurance assistance for low-income people.
Gardner wants Obamacare replacement to make Colorado better, but new GOP bill would make things worse
U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has told multiple reporters he’s undecided on the latest GOP bill to kill Obamacare, in part, as he told KOA radio this morning, because he wants to see “whether Colorado is better or worse” under the legislation.
After first being undecided and then voting for three GOP proposals to kill Obamacare, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) says he has yet to figure out whether he’s supportive of the latest Republican healthcare proposal, put forth by Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), which would, among other things, end Obamacare’s Medicaid subsidies and, instead, block grant most of Medicaid expansion funds to the states.
In public venues and sporadic interviews with reporters, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) still isn’t saying publicly how he’ll vote on legislation repealing Obamacare–or even what amendments or elements of a bill he favors.
Gardner helped strip from Obamacare a program to stabilize insurance markets but it’s now part of Senate healthcare bill
Republicans sabotaged Obamacare, in part, by stripping the law of funds to incentivize insurance companies to cover enrollees who were expensive to insure.
It’s gotten to the point where we no longer need to examine or critique Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner’s words at all. They speak for themselves.
On Wednesday, in a report from The Denver Post, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) said the GOP should have been more open about the bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.
I ran across this story about a “Rifle woman” going to Washington for a Donald Trump healthcare “listening session”. It seems strange to hold a listening session after the bill has already been committed to paper and the GOP has had more than seven years to “listen” and formulate a better healthcare plan than the Affordable Care Act.
