Video: Rep. Tom Garrett (R-VA) Says He Hasn’t Read AHCA; “none of those people did vote for me”


Incredibly, Virginia’s 5th CD used to be represented by Tom Perriello, who did a great job, was brilliant, etc. Now, it’s represented by….this horrible, idiotic, truly evil man. It makes me ill (oh wait, that could be a pre-existing condition, better be careful here!).  Seriously, though, Virginia 5th CD voters — get his mother@#$@#$ OUTTA HERE!

  • Video: Lie after lie by Rep. Morgan Griffith, who claims CBO estimate of 24 million losing insurance is “fake news” and Trumpcare “does everything that people want it to do.”


  • VA Dems: “Congressman Garrett’s dismissive response to people whose lives were saved by Obamacare is callous and cruel,” said DPVA spokeswoman Katie Baker. “We are talking about Virginian lives, American lives – not just those of people who live in his district or who cast their ballots for him. We are saddened by Congressman Garrett’s cold disregard for what repeal of the ACA will mean for all Virginians.”

  • DCCC Statement on Tom Garrett & House Republican Repeal & Ripoff Health Care Bill

    DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján released the following statement on the passage of the House Republicans’ repeal and ripoff health care bill:

    “Congressman Tom Garrett just voted to increase your health insurance premiums and deductibles, toss 24 million Americans off of their insurance, and to slap you with an age tax if you’re age 50 to 64 – and they robbed Medicare while doing it. If that’s not bad enough, Tom Garrett also voted to let health insurance companies charge you more if you have a preexisting condition. That means if you, your kids, or your parents are sick with cancer, diabetes or any other illness, insurance will not be affordable.

    “Make no mistake about it: Tom Garrett must face the music, look his constituents in the eye, and answer for the mess they created. There is no question that this bill will cause incredible pain for hardworking Americans, particularly those fighting to make ends meet, and this vote will haunt Garrett through Election Day.”

    Tom Garrett’s “yes” vote for this disastrous health care bill will end guaranteed protections for people with pre-existing conditions, like asthma, diabetes, cancer and even pregnancy. Beyond that, this bill will strip away health insurance from 24 million Americans, cause out-of-pocket costs like premiums and deductibles to skyrocket, and impose an unfair age tax on older Americans. There’s a reason that only 17% of Americans support this heartless and costly legislation.

  • More appalling than his vote itself: not reading what he’s voting on. One citizen’s response: #teachtomtoread
