LIVE: Gardner/Bennet/Hickenlooper "Town Hall"

  • 11 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

UPDATE #3: The Denver Post’s Jesse Paul reports from the scene–hoo boy:

U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner was shouted at and derided during a Durango town hall Friday afternoon that was slated to center on the Gold King Mine but which focused on anything but, as an unruly-at-times crowd pressed the Republican on health care.

“Why on Earth did you voter for the Republican (health) care bill when the vast majority of your constituents opposed it?” one man asked Gardner to cheers.

“Seven years ago when I ran for Congress I said that I would vote to repeal and replace Obamacare, and I’m going to continue to live up to the promise that I made,” Gardner said, being yelled down. “… The reason is: The Affordable Care Act isn’t working.”

Gardner has been chastised for months by liberal activists for failing to hold an in-person town hall with his constituents, and his first such appearance in more than a year was full of fireworks.

UPDATE #2: We’re waiting for news stories to be filed about today’s event, in which Sen. Cory Gardner was singled out by the capacity crowd who demanded answers on health care and loudly heckled his highly inadequate rote answers on the subject. The event is reportedly still going on, but we’ll be talking about this confrontation for days–we really thought Gardner would be better prepared for this.

Stand by for updates when coverage comes in…

UPDATE: Denver7’s feed has extended discussion continuing after the official end of the event:

    1. Mods, let's not make this thread about how lame you are this time, OK?

      Pols, I hope that you're going to make this live feed available later on.

      It's great stuff. All our reps are hearing it straight from the people here. Cory is having trouble making his glibberish fly, because he's getting called on it.

    2. So Moldy, where did it all go wrong? When did the dream become a nightmare?

      Nine months ago, you were basking in the afterglow of the yuge and bigley mandate which voters gave to your candidates and your party.

      Now your elected reps can't even go out in public anymore and in one case, your party is being sued for fraud because you guys lied to voters about repealing A.C.A.

       

  1. Does Gardner always talk like that (rapidly, fidgety), or is it just because he's ashamed of how he handled the Repeal and Replace stuff?

  2. The thing that isn't getting a lot of attention is how old and out of date Gardner sounds with his fall back excuses.  Like a pitcher who throws the same pitch too often, folks know what his lines and know why they are lies.  The guy needs new material or some honest facts to back up his positions.  The guy is sinking in staleness which is what got Udall.  Maybe Mooch is available to be his new communications director.
