#28, Mike Coffman (CO-06)

(This is for my 2014 U.S. House voting guide.)
  • Here, Coffman thinks a 15-year wait, among other obstacles, constitutes an “automatic path” to citizenship.
  • He said immigration bills “cleared the house” here (uh, no).
  • He once sponsored a bill allowing DREAMers who served in the military to gain citizenship but is now walking that back, of course (and he was confronted about that here).
  • Coffman said that President Obama “in his heart” was "not an American" here (nice - I realize that he's pretty much just parroting Repug orthodoxy on that subject, though).
  • He wanted to raise the eligibility for Social Security to age 70, which is tantamount to a cut (here).
  • Coffman is opposed in the 2014 election cycle by Dem Andrew Romanoff - to help Romanoff, click here.
