Suggested Questions for GOP Leadership

We here in the Democratic Whip Press Shop thought we’d pass along a few questions you may want to ask Speaker Ryan and Leader McCarthy at today’s press conference:

GOP QOTD: “If I could give you an answer today, I would, but I can’t”

Today’s Republican quote of the day comes from Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI). When asked what would happen to a constituent if the GOP moves ahead with their efforts to Make America Sick Again, he confirmed that Republicans still don’t have a real plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. From the New York Times:

Another Day, Another Ignored Constitutent

Over the weekend, House Republicans continued to avoid their constituents who oppose GOP efforts to repeal the ACA without having a real plan to replace it.

Roll Call reports Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) refuses to hold a town hall meeting to hear from constituents:

“Despite his colleagues’ continued attempts, New York Republican Rep. Chris Collins has no intention of holding a town hall meeting.”

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:

By Appointment Only?

Republicans are doing everything they can to duck constituents on their plan to Make America Sick Again. The latest examples? Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) is now requiring constituents to make appointments to visit his office. Just two days earlier, Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) turned down town hall invitations from voters.  Members have a responsibility to hear out their constituents - even the ones they disagree with.
