A Chorus of Boos

Things aren't going so well for Republicans back in their districts. Last night, Reps. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Justin Amash (R-MI), and Diane Black (R-TN) arrived at town halls with hundreds of voters demanding answers on President Trump’s unconstitutional Muslim ban, GOP efforts to #MakeAmericaSickAgain, and more.

Politico reports on the vocal opposition Chaffetz faced:

Can't take the heat?

Afraid of the number of people who will show up, voicing their support of the Affordable Care Act? Just plug your ears. This is the newest play from the Republican handbook in their effort to Make America Sick Again. From Roll Call

“Rep. John J. Duncan Jr., R-Tenn., turned down a request for a town hall meeting because he didn’t want to give publicity to ‘extremists, kooks and radicals.’"

President Trump's Muslim Ban: Making America Safe or Making America Sick?

While The Trump Administration claims their unconstitutional Muslim ban is designed to keep America safe, the facts show that’s not the case. Today, the New York Times offers additional evidence: the ban is preventing doctors from serving communities across the country.

Well, this is awkward.

Today, Speaker Ryan tweeted a blog post from his office, titled “Poorly-crafted regulations that hurt people? Not on our watch.”

Who wants to let him know that just today former national security officials slammed Trump’s Muslim ban because it was poorly crafted and implemented and puts people – our troops, the American people, allies around the world – at risk?
