Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) got more than he bargained for at his local Town Hall meeting in Springdale, Arkansas earlier this evening when faced with an uproarious packed house of angry voters who gave him an earful. The lines for the event circled around several blocks, and an hour and a half into the event, there was still a line of angry citizens waiting for their turn at the microphone.
Cotton was frequently made to sweat by voters who challenged him on his desire to repeal Obamacare and his support of Donald Trump who “grabs women by the pussy.” At one point, the crowd chanted “do your job!”
Town hall meetings across the Country are pitting angry voters against GOP Republicans and implying that not only is “the resistance” aimed to have a longer shelf life than many anticipated, but that it is even mobilizing citizens in unexpected areas like Arkansas.
Watch this fiery moment from the event this evening in which a woman in the audience defiantly challenged Tom Cotton by asking him what kind of health insurance he has, in response to his proposal to repeal Obamacare. (Of course, Senators receive comprehensive, taxpayer-funded health care for themselves and their families).
