Tweet those health-care reform questions to Rep. Coffman

U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman, an Aurora Republican, will be answering health-care reform questions submitted to the CBS4 Twitter account, the Denver television station tweets. Get those thumbs busy starting at 6 p.m.:


Like pretty much every Republican who’s talking, Coffman opposes the so-called public option, he told Adam Schrager on the 9News “Your Show” two weekends ago:

The public option “will have an inherent competitive advantage over the private sector,” Coffman said. “I don’t think the ultimate goal is to have competition with the private sector. I think the ultimate goal is to have a single-payer health care system run by government that will in my view drive this nation further into debt by creating an entitlement.”

And here’s a look at one of Coffman’s live-and-in-person town hall meetings held Aug. 12 in Littleton:
