Town Hall Protesters Mock Death of GOP Lawmaker’s Special Needs Daughter

Written by  Penny Starr

Liberal activists involved in a nationwide effort to disrupt town hall meetings being held by lawmakers for their constituents reached a new low on Wednesday night when Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-NJ) was mocked when he told the unruly crowd about how the death of his special needs daughter informed his decision to amend and vote for the American Health Care Act that was passed by the House earlier this month.

When MacArthur started to tell the story about Gracie, who died two decades ago at age 11, someone yelled “Shame!,” accusing the lawmaker of “using” his daughter’s death to promote his political agenda.

“I will say shame on you right now actually,” MacArthur said. “I’m going to tell you because this affects my perspective on this issue of health care.”

The Congressman offered the “MacArthur amendment” in the GOP bill that now will be taken up by the Senate.

The amendment, in part, offers protections for people with pre-existing conditions and would “create an option for states to obtain Limited Waivers from certain federal standards, in the interest of lowering premium costs and expanding the number of insured persons.”

When MacArthur tried to explain the facts about the health legislation, he was shouted down.

It is sad to observe godless people who do not respect a father who is trying to help children like his that died at age 11.
I agree that attendees at town hall meetings should be restricted to members of that local community and the outsider hecklers should not be allowed to attend (many cases are that they are paid hecklers)

Gene, you are the heighth of immoral, shameless, communist leftists. How dare you act like a degenerate pos about someone's daughter dieing when she was 11 years old? You are a child of Satan.

How very sad and how very rude. I hope the liberals (and Soros) are proud of their nastiness.
How cruel and unjust. The Rep. bill has not even been written yet. What MacArthur amendment was about is pre-existing conditions (a part of health care that everyone is concerned about) and he should be applauded not booed.
The Senate will now work on the bill.
What ever problems occur after the House and Senate agree, it will be better than what we have now.

Mrs. Clinton & all of her news affiliates, where is the outrage over this? Funny, it is very silent & not newsworthy as President Trump did not do this. The double standards are almost breathtaking amid the hypocrisy from the Dems, Rino's & the left wing do gooders.

Town hall meetings should be restricted to people who live in the district and are actually represented by the Congressman in attendance. These George Soros paid professionaal hooligans should be identified a barred from attending.

You hateful people are real gems, I tell you. Thank you William for your above comment! You hypocrites at this meeting talk all about haters and bash Trump, maybe you forget to look into your own souls and see all the crud there. Rep. MacArthur, you sure have some crazies in your area so I give you kudos in being courageous. Try to realize that since we are not like them, for every 50 of these nuts there are hundreds of us quieter ones who voted out some of the hypocrites, liars and thieves. Just remind them over and over that we won the last elections and don't have the predisposition as they obviously do to attack and always find fault. May they be prayed for that their sin-sick souls be saved from hell before it is too late for them. I convey my personal sympathies to you on your very personal loss and say that time does not heal perfectly on this side but there will be a reunion on the other, my blessings to you. You appear to be a good man trying to shine a light in a dark area. And I ask that you support legislatively all the attacks on any so-called disabled or handicapped person made in the image of God! Blessings!!

John

Thank you for your heartfelt comment, I just don't understand people these days, it's sad.

Over the past 25 years or so I have seen a dramatic lessening of courtesy and class by so many Americans it is sickening-even my foreign cousins have noticed it when they visit here [my cousins have commented too how poorly we dress, how much less intelligent our young people have become and how so many of our cities look like 3rd world countries...I wonder if this is a connection]

You are right.It took the Crime Syndicate Democrat party 4-5 generations to dumb down the people and 2008 it came home to roost.Also their vile language in the party and support of illegals have all contributed to this destruction of America.I am a naturalized citizen and have seen the destruction by the Democrats beginning with Carter.They are NOT Democrats today they are COMMUNISTS,Marxists and Muslim America haters,very few Americans if any

Cannot stand their hypocrisy ANYMORE..who on here is with me!!!!

Many of us are as a coutry divided against itself cannot stand.

Liberals appear to avoid the word "WHY?" and fail to sense what the tomorrow will be like after they apply bias. I would like to hear Why their need for hate, ugly talk, and a desire to hurt others.

The disingenuous liberal's are also totally lacking in manners...this is starting to wear really thin! If they don't clean up their act they are going to get what they are asking for...and it will be ugly.

When did our ability to debate and have differing opinions disappear!! There's no reason to listen to Democratic Paty and concerns if they can't respect and give the same courtesies to Independents and GOP!

It seems that the Democratic Party is using the tactics of the Nationalist Socialist Party! It is time for the average american to rise up and put an end to those not allowing free speech under any terms.

Thier tactics haven't changed since the brown shirt activities of 1933-1945. They are all the same. These are the modern iteration of the Nationalsozialusmus Party. Hate, cruelty, and willing do anything to achieve their ends. This began in 1970 with the Earth First movement and continues today.

These people are criminals and evil. The way they can beat Trump followers up just because they hate every part of the Republican party and for those who defend Trump and what he stands for. When and how do we get the evilness of these thugs and rioters stopped. They are getting worse and nothing is being about it.

My question is this : "What ever happened to Roberts Rules of Order when holding any type of meeting?" When somebody disrupts the meeting and refuses to listen they are then escorted from the meeting. If they refuse to leave then they are taken out by the Sargent of Arms. In a Public meeting, this would be the Police (Security) and charged with being disruptive in a public meeting. This would help to restore order. Why is this being tolerated.? Freedom of speech only goes as far as half the distance between you and the other person. It does not give you the right to force your view onto someone else.

I am getting sick and,tired of these asshole protesters, and these idiots better hope that this doesn't turn onto one of their kids. And that old ashtray that is standing his time is,numbered and better hope someone doesn't treat him like shit. I am waiting for these assholes to say something to me. I got something I want to say to them

Nothing that the left is doing now comes from an informed position or has any rational thought behind it. Let's take a guess at how many of these disruptors have read a single page of the new health care bill.

Unfortunately, the left only understands violence and disruption. The only way they'll stop is when they are affected by it. We have an all out civil war.
*
The left needs to be hit with their own tactics. We need to annihilate them any way and any time we can. I wish it weren't so, but that's the only solution I can foresee.
*
The left is trying to destroy us. This is an existential crisis. We need to destroy them as the monsters they are. Destroy the left.

Only an indictment of Hillary for the email destruction and pay to play tied to the original instigator Obama and his cabinet heads can stop it. Only by exposing the corrupt of the former regime can Trump lead in peace with the ignorance of those daily led by lying democrats and Obama worshippers. The liberal media controls the news which is fake and untrue, the major newspaper are not newspapers, but toilet paper for spreading stories by lying hate Trump make belief journalist. I blame one guy who ought to be in a prison cell not running around freely after breaking so many laws.
