Watch as Trump supporters do a nice job of putting the heat on Rep. Maxine Waters after an appearance in Gardena, California.
Excerpt from Raw Story
The California Democrat, who spoke Saturday at a packed town hall meeting in Gardena, said she worries some Americans will be forced to do what her family did if the Republican health care bill passes. Senate Republicans have pledged to pass a bill before the July 4 holiday.
Some GOP senators have said they want to review the analysis of the bill from the Congressional Budget Office before making up their minds. The budget office has said it will release that assessment early next week.
Waters said the existing bill would deny access to people with pre-existing conditions, cause millions to lose their health care and penalize millennials.
“We can do better than this,” she said.
Supporter Gwen Bailey, 59, who works doing admissions at a hospital, said she worries especially about the people who could lose their insurance and the strain it would put on hospitals.
“It’s a lot that people would be losing,” she said.
Inside, chants of “USA! USA!” could be heard from around 80 protesters who paced back and forth outside the venue.
Waters’ opponents were dressed in pro-Trump garb and called her “Dirty Waters.”
