McMorris Rodgers Fields Health Care Questions at Town Hall

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers held her first Spokane town hall since the 2016 election, taking questions on health care, the president and North Korea.

The Spokesman-Review reports the Republican congresswoman fielded over 20 questions Thursday at the event for 300 at Gonzaga University.

Many questioned her support of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act with the crowd chanting “Save our health care” at the close of the event.

McMorris Rodgers told the crowd that everyone needs access to health insurance, but didn’t provide specifics.

She also reiterated general support for President Donald Trump, prompting a crowd outburst of mostly boos.

When questioned on threats being volleyed between North Korea’s leader and Trump, McMorris Rodgers said she was “pleased to see a president that is taking this very seriously.”

About 100 protesters held signs supporting science and health care outside the event.
