It Has Begun… Dem Rep Cancels Town Hall Over Fears of Being Alone With Constituents
In his cancellation notice his staff made clear:
“Don’t get me wrong, Congressman Ryan will debate anyone, anytime.”
He’ll debate anyone at anytime.
…Just not in public and not at a town hall meeting.
The Hill reported:
Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) canceled a town hall on the new healthcare law Tuesday because of concerns about the security of the event.
The congressman’s office cited safety issues at the facility where the meeting was to take place and threats to his office, according to a report by News21.
“We just thought it best to cancel it for safety concerns. This was not meant to be a place where we’re going to talk partisan politics,” Pat Lowry, a member of Ryan’s staff, told News21. “Don’t get me wrong, Congressman Ryan will debate anyone, anytime.”
The cancelation comes a week after many lawmakers received threats because of their votes on the healthcare measure.
Howard voted in favor of Obamacare.
