I CAME to Cong. Mike Coffman intending to get the story of his Jewish forbears. He gave me that, and much more, too.
Highlights from our 90-minute conversation:
Coffman’s forbears were Jewish, originating in Baghdad, coming to the US and Israel via Shanghai, China.
Waste at the Dept. of Defense is out of control. Coffman would go further than President Obama in cutting it.
The VA hospital at Anschutz is not the only VA hospital over budget and years behind. The culprit: VA management. The solution: Strip the VA permanently of construction management.
Coffman has more military experience than any other member of Congress.
