“The best government is closest to the people,” said Rep. Mike Coffman. Coffman, who represents the 6th Congressional District, was onstage with interviewer Michael Brown at an invitation-only event sponsored by Americans for Prosperity-Colorado. While guests mingled, submitted questions and sampled heavy hors d’oeuvres at the Radisson Hotel Denver Southeast, former undersecretary of Homeland Security and radio host Michael Brown was onstage with Coffman for an in-depth interview following the recent passage of the Tax Reform Bill. “I did vote for the recent bill,” said Coffman. Among the numerous questions posed – the congressman defined “crumbs’ as the $2,000 for that average family making $76,000 (from statistics in his own district). About the effect on millennials and lifting the mandate under the Affordable Care Act: 1 – The corporate part is down 21 percent. 2-The individual rate has a 20 percent reduction with few exceptions. 3- The child tax credit rose from $1,000 to $2,000. “Work is the fabric of this country,” said Coffman. “A major move is needed on Welfare Reform. I would like to go into all the programs to address the ‘able-bodied’ who could work.” Americans for Prosperity supports free markets. Its tagline is: Transforming Colorado by educating and mobilizing communities of people toward policies that increase individual freedom and opportunity.
