Cory Gardner Supports AND Opposes GOP Healthcare Bill

Yesterday, Senator Cory Gardner (R-Yuma) signed a letter from four Republican Senators expressing opposition to any healthcare legislation that would attempt to gut Medicaid, which is a key component in any serious GOP repeal-and-destroy legislation. This was an interesting move from Gardner, given that he voted in late 2015 to gut Medicaid, but attempting to be all things to all people is how Gardner rolls.

Today, Vice President Mike Pence spoke to Senate leaders to convey that he and President Trump fully support the House Republican healthcare plan. Guess who showed up to the press conference?

Yup, that’s Sen. Gardner just to the left of the podium behind Pence. From the look on his face, Gardner must have been anxious that he might not have time to make it over to the press conference denouncing the House Republican plan.
