Coffman's attack on Miklosi's record highlights Coffman's own legislative failures in DC
Apparently Rep. Mike Coffman is going all out against Joe Miklosi to hold onto his seat, with the Denver Post reporting that Coffman says Miklosi has overstated his legislative record. I reckon Coffman ought to have made sure he wasn't sitting in a glass house of legislative failure before casting those stones. I can't find a single accomplishment Coffman can claim from legislation he sponsored. Coffman obviously has no power in Congress, is too inept to get anything done, and maybe his ideas are just too out there for anyone to actually support. He can't even get a meaningless resolution passed. I took a look at Coffman's record in Congress and it appears that in his two terms in Congress, only one bill sponsored (not cosponsored) by Coffman has even passed the House, much less been made into law (HR1879 in 2009 didn't make it through the Senate, though it seemed to be a decent idea). Nearly 4 years of "legislating" and he has led the charge on a grand total of ZERO bills that were ever made law. Isn't the point of legislating to change laws to better your constituents? Did he miss that session of class? Of course, I think Coffman's absolute failure to get legislation passed is generally a good thing, as his ideas are usually bad for all of us. Really bad. His one bill to make it through the House in 4 years looks not bad, but I guess it needs to be sponsored by a legislator who has the cajones to actually push it through. But overall, Coffman's attack on Miklosi's record is pretty pitiful coming from a guy who doesn't have a single accomplishment in 2 terms in Congress. What's he been doing all this time in Washington?
