There’s something happening here. And what it is is actually pretty clear: the modern-day Robespierre in the GOP are pulling the biggest reverse Robing Hood con on healthcare known to mankind. As a result, the people are having one collective Howard Beale moment and not taking any of their crap anymore.
We’re already aware of the man who emphatically called out Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-NJ) in a most poignant fashion, but some constituents are not being as polite.
A healthcare town hall with Rep. Kevin Kramer (R-ND) eventually became a free for all during a pretty heated exchange between a concerned citizen and the deceptive GOP Congressman. Nearly everyone in attendance jeered Cramer on Thursday about his vote to repeal and replace major parts of the Affordable Care Act, but one man was a special kind of angry.
A man in the crowd approached Cramer, accusing the Republican and other House members who voted for the bill as undermining health care law. The man then took dollar bills from his wallet and tried to shove them into Cramer’s suit pocket, saying they could help pay the medical expenses of a young child whose mother had just spoken.
“Will the rich benefit if Healthcare is destroyed and do the rich get a tax break?”, asked the man in forceful fashion. He added, “Yes or No!”
And in typical lying GOP fashion, Cramer said, “of course not.” This is when the man became very frustrated and put his hands on Cramer.
The NY Times did an entire report on how this sham of a healthcare plan is nothing but tax cuts for the wealthy, but old habits die hard with the lying GOP. So let’s not even pretend to believe that this abomination on paper does anything but continue to coddle the super rich, or the GOP’s political sugar daddies.
Watch the heated exchange below:
