Saturday’s conversation in a Denver suburb about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) reportedly attracted so many people that the congressman met with four people at a time.

The congressman’s chief of staff issued a statement to 9News, blaming the arrangement on the “volume of people."

"Rep. Mike Coffman routinely hosts constituent one on one meetings across the district. Constituents are invited to meet individually with the congressman to express their opinions, seek help with a range of issues, and discuss legislation. Given the volume of people who came, the Congressman met with four people at a time for five minutes each for a total of more than 70 constituents," said the statement.

Coffman, a top target of Democrats during the 2016 election, penned an op-ed last week with three GOP lawmakers from the Centennial State that called for “a reality check” on ObamaCare.

“This law has failed Coloradans — it hasn’t made health care affordable or accessible,” the congressmen wrote.
