Oct 14 2017 Iran
We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Chris Coons is associated, including Exxon Mobil, Donald Trump, and experience. Most recently, Chris Coons has been quoted saying: “From public statements and from private conversations that I've had, there is wide opposition to blowing up the Iran nuclear deal, even from the people who voted against it originally. The majority opinion of the senators that I've spoken to, both among supporters and opponents of the deal, is that it has succeeded so far in constraining Iran's nuclear program … and that Iran has so far kept its part of the deal.” in the article Trump's Wrecking Ball Aims at Iran Accord.

Jun 22 2017 - Obamacare

Look, it's hard for me to believe that for something as important as a bill that would remake health care for hundreds of millions of people, that they're holding no hearings. There's a reason that President Trump called the House version of Obamacare repeal 'mean.' It's because it cuts Medicaid by too much, and it cuts Medicare by too much just to fund a tax cut. I think there's a real reason that the Republican leadership here in the Senate is hiding this bill even from its own

Apr 03 2017 - SCOTUS

As I talk to Democrats, I think we are all outraged at how Merrick Garland was treated in the process and that got us to where we are today. As I talk to Republicans, they remind me of the 2013 changes in rules.
