    Sanders: 'If you don't have the guts to face your constituents,' you shouldn't

    Sanders: ‘If you don’t have the guts to face your constituents,’ you shouldn’t be in Congress



    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Thursday blasted the GOP lawmakers who have refused to hold in-person town hall events due to a flurry of recent protests.

    “If you don’t have the guts to face your constituents, then you shouldn’t be in the United States Congress,” Sanders said during an interview with CNN.

    The former presidential candidate said the wave of angry of American voters greeting GOP lawmakers is a consequence of unpopular positions articulated by President Trump, including a call to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.


    “And if you need police at the meetings, that’s fine, have police at the meetings, have security at the meetings. But don’t use that as an excuse to run away from your constituents after you support repealing the Affordable Care Act, throwing 20 million people off of health insurance, doing away with preexisting conditions,” he said.”If you are going to do all those things, answer the questions that your constituents have.”

    1. I'm going to have to nitpick with Bernie

    Republicans aren’t “doing away with pre-existing conditions”, they want to bring them back.

    What is a “pre-existing” condition anyway, something that exists before it exists??

    Policy:  The mistaken notion that bossy people have that they can influence other people's behavior through majority rule.
