At raucous town halls, Republicans have faced another round of anger over health care

Source: MSN/Washington Post

BRUNSWICK, Ga. — The long August congressional recess, which Republicans hoped would begin a conversation about tax reform and must-pass budget measures, has so far seen another round of angry town halls focused on President Trump and the stalled effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Over just one day, in three small towns along Georgia’s Atlantic coastline, Rep. Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (R-Ga.) spent more than four hours answering 74 questions, many of them heated. Just three focused on tax reform; nearly half of all questions focused on health care.

“We did our job in the House,” Carter said at the top of a town hall at Brunswick’s College of Coastal Georgia. “It got over to the Senate, and it hit a stumbling block there. Now it’s in their court, and they need to get something done. Folks, we’re not giving up.”

Carter’s town halls — he is hosting nine total, more than any member of the House — mirrored what was happening in swing and safe Republican districts across the country. The failure of the repeal bill kick-started a tax reform campaign, backed by Republican leaders and pro-business groups, who have booked millions of dollars in TV ads to promote whatever might lead to an “uncomplicated” tax code.

2. Hahaha

Hey pukes, you won't be able to con the public with your phony tax "reform" = "tax cuts for the wealthy" any more than you were able to do so with your phony healthcare "reform" = "tax cuts for the wealthy".

Americans are waking up: puke policies all turn out to be = "tax cuts for the wealthy, screw everybody else"

3. Here is one question I would like answered

WHY do politicians get a "special" healthcare plan, while the rest of us are screwed over? If the plan they are pushing is so good, why don't they enroll Maybe we would ALL like the type of coverage that McCain, Scalise, Cheney all have? On any other plan, they would all have had to file bankruptcy by now.

4. Why are we not seeing 24/7 coverage of this in the MSM?

Curious...eh?

Is the media telling us that these need to get violent before they will cover them like they covered the T-baggers?
