Rep. Mike Coffman goes to great lengths to paint himself as a moderate voice for his constituents, but that pitch rings hollow upon any examination of his voting record. Instead of standing up for Colorado values at a time when it’s desperately needed in Washington, Coffman has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Donald Trump—voting to advance the administration’s harmful agenda 96% of the time.
After a decade of inadequate representation from Mike Coffman, families in Colorado’s 6th District deserve a leader like Jason Crow, who will actually stand up for their best interests every day, rather than just paying them lip service.
Jason Crow has never shied away from a fight. He worked minimum wage jobs through high school, before eventually enlisting in the National Guard and working construction to pay his way through college. Then, he joined the Army serving three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and earning a Bronze Star along the way. He’s been a tireless advocate for veterans in Colorado, and has fought to help local businesses thrive. Jason Crow is running for Congress so he can fight for the families of the 6th District in Washington.
See how Rep. Mike Coffman’s record compares to challenger Jason Crow’s on key issues:
Rep. Mike Coffman
Passed a tax scam that hands the top 1% an average cut of $55,000, while hiking taxes on millions in the middle class. The law will add $1.9 trillion to our deficit, setting the stage for Social Security and Medicare cuts.
- Despite representing the district where both the Columbine and Aurora mass shootings occurred, Coffman has voted in lockstep with the gun lobby, earning an ‘A’ rating from the NRA since 2010
- Failed to protect DREAMers, who contribute $164 million to the economy in CO-06 alone.
- Voted for the Trump administration’s harmful agenda 96% of the time.
- Cosponsored the NRA’s ‘Right-to-Carry’ bill in 2009 and helped pass a similar bill that would force states with strong gun laws to comply with lax gun laws from other states.
- Supported banning abortion—even in cases of rape and incest—and repeatedly voted to defund Planned Parenthood.
- Received a lifetime environmental score of just 5% from the League of Conservation Voters.
Will work to strengthen the Affordable Care Act to achieve its goal of universal access to affordable, quality health care.
Will build an economy that works for everyone, that ensures good wages and affordable housing.
Supports common-sense reforms to reduce gun violence, including a ban on weapons of war, restrictions on high-capacity magazines, and closing loopholes in the background check system.
Would fight for a path to citizenship for DREAMers and work across the aisle to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
Will protect women’s rights, including access to reproductive services and the right to make health care decisions that are right for them and their families.
