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.’"
