Dem Rep Says Will Hold Town Hall Meetings in GOP Districts to Explain Trumpcare

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-NY, on Saturday offer to hold Town Hall meetings and explain the Republican bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care At to constituents of Republican lawmakers who are avoiding public events during the latest House recess.

“I think every Republican who voted for this thing ought to have to stand in front of their voters and explain it,” Maloney said in an interview with MSNBC. “And if it takes a Democrat to go in and do it for them for a while, I’ll explain what’s in this bill.”

On Thursday, Maloney called on Rep. John Faso, R-NY, to address comments from his constituents about the bill.

“And if he doesn’t like it, he should stand up and explain it himself,” Maloney added on Saturday.

He said Democrats need to “get on offense.”

“Maybe a Democrat ought to go into every district where a Republican who supported Trumpcare won’t hold a town hall meeting and do it for them,” he said. “Sit in that chair and say I’ll stand here and answer your questions until your own congressman starts doing his job.”
