‘Shame, shame!’: GOP aides booed at Georgia constituent meeting after refusing to take questions
Republicans across the country keep getting hammered by protesters who are upset that the party may repeal the Affordable Care Act without any kind of replacement.
On Friday morning, congressional aides for three key Georgia Republicans — U.S. Sens. David Perdue and Johnny Isakson, and Rep. Jody Hice — fled what was billed as a constituents services meeting after getting booed by protesters.
Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the aides to the lawmakers were overwhelmed when they saw dozens of protesters who were eager to make their voices heard on repealing Obamacare and other key issues.
“About a half-dozen congressional aides briefly addressed the crowd, telling them the event was not a town hall and they would take no questions from the floor,” the AJC reports. “They left after crowd members chanted ‘shame, shame, shame.'”
