    Today, U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) issued the below statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address: "Unfortunately, the State of the Union address has deteriorated into a sort of partisan pep rally, so I frankly don't put a whole lot of stock into it one way or the other.

  • Higher cost for many under Obamacare
    Posted in Op-Eds on December 12, 2013 | Preview rr
    Tags: Health Care

    Obamacare was supposed to “bend the cost curve” when it comes to our nation’s spending on health care but the concerns from my constituents I’ve received in the last few months pertain to increases in health care insurance premiums and reduced benefits through much higher deductibles. One constituent from Aurora wrote: “I was notified by Kaiser Permanente that the current plan in which I am enrolled in will be cancelled beginning Jan. 1, 2014, and I would need to enroll in another program. I hav... Read more

    The very people casting the votes and doing the most thinking and talking about the virtues and vices of the Affordable Care Act face a personal decision with a looming deadline: What to do for their own health care next year.

    Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed, by a vote of 235-191, H.R. 2775, the No Subsidies Without Verification Act. I supported this legislation because I feel it preemptively addresses an issue that will, if left unchecked, end up costing the taxpayers billions of dollars. Under the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, those whose annual income is less than $46,000 for an individual and $94,500 for a family of four will receive a taxpayer subsidized “premium payment” that wil...
