Senator Mitch McConnell said it best: “It’s time to move on.” Republicans have tried to ram through any version of Trumpcare they could come up with, all of which would kick millions off their health insurance in an effort to cut taxes for the wealthy.  

While the Affordable Care Act might not be perfect, it has made tremendous progress for millions of Americans and Coloradans. I’ve always been open to improving the ACA, but I will oppose any effort to roll back the progress we’ve made. It is past time Republicans worked with Democrats to find solutions to the ACA instead of trying to dismantle it. 

One area where Democrats and Republicans can work together with the Trump Administration is on infrastructure. Investing in roads, bridges, transit, water projects, broadband and the electrical grid will create good-paying jobs now and help continue economic growth in our communities. I’m ready to work with Republicans and Democrats to pass an infrastructure package and I hope Congress takes this issue up quickly this fall.  

Last week, my office held our seventh Vietnam War Commemoration Pinning Ceremony. Among those honored were four brothers – Donald, Gerald, John, and Stephen Spann. They all served during the Vietnam-era, and Don and Gerry served together in Vietnam. After the pinning ceremony, they shared some of their experiences and the impact of their service on their family.
