I voted ‘Yes’ on H.R 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. I did so because this bill – while not perfect— is, overall, a pro-growth, pro-family, bill that will help millions of Americans…. Not, as the Sentinel insinuates, one to cynically heap riches on plutocrats
Many of the middle class taxpayers hurt by this bill, which make up probably the biggest portion of Coffman’s district, would at best see very little or no real net change from this measure, but by credible accounts they would see their net taxes go up
Rather than indulge the unrealistic and inhumane path that Trump and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions are inflicting on all of America, Congress should bypass the White House and impose a far more realistic and compassionate plan
“I believe the president would sign it (the bill) if we could pass it,” Coffman said. “I believe the president just wants to let (the DACA issue) go, but now he doesn’t have a choice.”

Expanding the buffer zone will also put the base in a better position to compete for the basing of the F-35 fighter that is replacing the aging F-16 fighters currently based at Buckley
“Buckley is absolutely vital to our local economy and to our national security, and I am pleased that this funding will be included in the 2017 (National Defense Authorization Act),” Coffman said.
“I’m an American. My values are American values and we want this country to succeed like everyone else.”
Sanctuary cites are only a symptom of a greater problem that requires fixing our broken immigration system and I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress, on both sides of the aisle, to get the job done
“As a matter of fact I’ve never met (Pelosi) and I’ve never spoken with her. I’m nobody’s candidate expect for voters of the 6th Congressional District. I have a history of service in this county, and in this country, that’s outside of politics,” Crow said. “Nobody’s pitting me against Mike Coffman. This is a decision my wife and I thought about for a long time — how can we best be a check against Donald Trump and how to stand up against him?”
