f the Senate bill passes next week, this tax cut for the wealthy disguised as a health care improvement will risk us all. If you rely on your job to give you health care, if you have family members you care for and want to protect with health insurance, this bill will undermine your ability to provide for and protect your family
It can’t be an improvement, because, like all these plans, it doesn’t address the problem. Like Obamacare, Trumpcare 2.0 will be a shell game, shifting costs from one unlucky American to another, with everybody paying more for less every single year

My theory is that there’s simply no longer room for the moderate Republican Coffman really wants to be
Somebody has to lose for consumers to gain. It’s not complicated nor mysterious. It’s simple economics. Somebody has to make less money for what they’re doing right now. Drug companies,doctors, hospitals, bed-pan makers. If they don’t make less, then we pay more
The unexpected ad pullback soon after President Donald Trump took office was termed “sabotage” by Democrats and former Obama officials. The new administration said the ads were a waste of taxpayer dollars
