Virginia Republicans Vote to Gut Medicare, Avoid Constituents’ Ire by Holding No Town Hall Meetings


    Earlier this month, Virginia Republicans voted unanimously for Paul Ryan’s plan to destroy Medicare and slash taxes for rich people. Across America, anger has been pouring out by concerned Americans.

    But here in Virginia? Silence, as Republican Congresscritters hide from their constituents. Robert Hurt? No town halls (or other events) scheduled. Scott Rigell? Nothing this month. Morgan Griffith? Nada. Frank Wolf? No sign of anything. Eric Cantor? Zip. Randy Forbes? Doesn’t look like it. Rob Wittman? Nope. Getting the picture here?

    One exception: Bob Goodlatte, who has several town halls on his website.
