The republicans in Congress have revealed Trumpcare. They’ve laid an egg.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler‏ @RepHartzler
Folks all across my district are being hindered by high insurance costs. We can and should do better. #RepealAndReplace
5:29 PM – 6 Mar 2017

Some of the responses:

@RepHartzler If u support the GOP draft bill I just reviewed, u r soooo out of a job come Nov 6, 2018 and it’ll be Hell between now n then

@RepHartzler If that bill is what u meant by “access to health care”, u r totally out of touch w/ your constituents. Oh wait no town halls

@RepHartzler With respect, ma’am, how would you know if you never meet with people from your district?

@RepHartzler I’m in your district, and you have never held a town hall or spent time with your constituents that I can tell.

Hey @RepHartzler – how does screwing them over with HSA plans help them out at all? Oh right, it doesn’t. The replacement is a J-O-K-E

@RepHartzler Meet with the “folks” in your district sometime, you liar.

@RepHartzler do you think HSA’s are a fair or realistic solution for the people of Cass County? Do you know our average household income?

@RepHartzler Better? The new GOP bill favors young and wealthy over elderly and poor. How is that better? Hope you’re ready for a fight.

@RepHartzler, this plan will let ppl die and make rural hospitals fail.

@RepHartzler How will insurance costs go down for those who need it most?

@RepHartzler Once again you leave out the people in your district that ACA helped. LIES MATTER! Read your Bible about them

@RepHartzler Where is the CBO score, which shows cost and how many will lose their insurance and lives? You are not a Christian

@RepHartzler you sure don’t know your district

@RepHartzler The people of Boonville would like to invite you for a townhall on the subject. You name time and place.

That ain’t gonna happen.

Rep. Vicky Hartzler (r): Well, you asked. (February 21, 2017)

You think Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) has been smiling a lot this week? (February 23, 2017)

Rep. Vicky Hartzler (r): just a slight indication of what an open public town hall in the district would be like (February 26, 2017)

Rep. Vicky Hartzler (r): before that Russian thing happened today (March 2, 2017)
