And that’s exactly what is happening.
CNN reports from Murfreesboro, Tennessee and in Salt Lake City, Utah, regular stops on their coverage tour, that it’s payback time for Republicans.
Murfreesboro, Tennessee (CNN)More than seven years after angry anti-Obamacare town halls erupted across the country, raw emotions are boiling over again — this time, as the Republican Party under President Donald Trump gears up to dismantle Barack Obama’s legacy.
The(y) shouted questions, emotional pleas and raucous protesters of the evening crystalized the GOP’s tough political road ahead as it forges ahead with rolling back Obama’s accomplishments, including the Affordable Care Act.

The Democrats conducting these dog and pony shows are being hailed as heroes by the media.
Until this circus leaves town, we mere constituents will have to make due communicating with our lawmakers by email, like most of us do anyway. Don’t be discouraged by these tactics, now more than ever does our GOP delegation in Washington need to hear we support them, and the overturning of Obamacare.
