REPUBLICAN CONGRESSWOMAN SKIPS HER OWN OBAMACARE TOWNHALL, LEAVING CONSTITUENTS FURIOUS

Rep. Barbara Comstock stood up constituents over the weekend who attended two townhalls with questions about an Obamacare repeal and the Trump Administration’s travel ban.

The centrist Virginia Republican invited people in her districts to “mobile office hours” on Saturday at two grocery stores in Lorton and Oakton, Va. The invitation specifically said she’d be there to answer questions about “issues important to you.”

But Comstock never showed up, angering dozens of constituents who wanted clarity on the GOP’s plan to replace Obamacare. Others wanted to question her about Trump’s immigration executive order. Dulles International Airport, after all, sits on the edge of Comstock’s district. And on Saturday, thousands from her Northern Virginia district swarmed the airport to protest the travel ban as green-card holders were detained for hours at a time.

A friend just came back from a Comstock event in Oakton — Barbara was supposed to meet constituents there to talk about the repeal of Obamacare AND SHE NEVER SHOWED UP,” wrote Fairfax resident James McCeney on the public Facebook page of liberal activist group, Our Revolution Northern Virginia. “THIS IS SHAMEFUL… If you’re in the 10th district, call her office and let her know that we won’t be tolerating her not doing her job anymore.”
