Colorado Republican Congressman Mike Coffman got a lesson in political karma when he showed up for a town hall meeting with constituents, met with four voters, and then ducked out the back when he realized how many people were damn pissed off about his recent vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Hundreds of constituents showed up to raise hell with Coffman for his zeal to take their healthcare away, and were then told he would only meet with them one-on-one. Turns out he couldn’t handle that, either, and scurried off like the gutless weasel he is.
Krondia Siebert commented:
“The Representative didn’t have a plan. They expected just a small handful of people to show up. We were under the understanding it was a town hall meeting and they were only allowing four people in at a time.”
Another voter, Berthie Ruoff, said she wanted to give Coffman a piece of her mind for his plans to rip affordable healthcare away from her:
“My husband passed away and the only way I was able to get insurance was through the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare. I am potentially going to lose my health insurance. I’ve had a preexisting condition. I’ve had breast cancer. What’s going to happen to me? My spouse who had health insurance passed away. What do I do? You know, what am I supposed to do?”
Expect this same scene across the country in districts represented by Republicans. They talk big and love to vote against other people’s best interests, but when it comes time to take the flak, they don’t even have the balls to stick around and hear the rage from the very people who put them in office.
