17. Stupid.Tea Party, Amash (R-MI) deny entry to townhall meeting; Senior citizens and reporters forced

to leave.

Rep. Justin Amash held a townhall meeting sponsored by a Tea Party group on Saturday, but a group of senior citizens and two reporters including this one were denied entry to the event.

The traditional purpose of a townhall meeting is for an elected official to meet with his constituents in public, giving the people a chance to ask questions and engage in dialogue with their representatives. But neither the organizers nor Amash apparently wanted to hear from or speak to a group of concerned senior citizens even at a time when the fate of Medicare is being debated in Congress.

About eight senior citizens arrived at the Prince Conference Center on the Calvin College campus for a chance to question Amash concerning his voting record in regards to eliminating Medicare.

12. Justin Amash is a Teabagger piece of shit
The only reason he got elected is because of this area and he had an R behind his name. Many mainstream Republicans campaigned for the Democrat but it was not to be. Now we're stuck with this waste of oxygen.
