"I'm sorry but that mail box is full."

That's what you get when you call the Washington DC line of U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), even though a recorded voice, apparently Gardner's, tells you, "Please leave a message."

Gardner's voicemail box has been full for days as citizens have focused on stopping the lawmaker from voting to repeal Obamacare. Citizens have also been trying to find out what his replacement plan is, if any.

The line of U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) has also been full, sending callers to a recording stating, "Honorable Coffman main line is not available. This mailbox is full."

U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet's (D-CO) office was accepting messages from citizens today, as was U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette's (D-CO) line.

Protesters, concerned about health care, rallied at the Women's March in Denver yesterday and at a Jan. 10 rally in front of Gardner's office on 17th Avenue in downtown Denver.

Gardner said on KOA radio in Denver last week that Republicans have "hundreds of bills," which are "Small and big" and "very targeted," but he's not yet produced an Obamacare replacement for the public to review and contrast with the Affordable Care Act.
