Doug LaMalfa voted his conscience and voted the way the overwhelming majority of voters in his district wanted him to…his reward:
“May you die in pain.”
That was the nastiest moment of Republican Rep. Doug LaMalfa’s early morning town hall in the Northern California town of Chico on Monday.
The wish was uttered by an old Leftist loser who criticized LaMalfa for voting for the House GOP plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. He was also holding a pink sign that read “Lackey for the Rich!”
LaMalfa stood his ground on stage as freak-show Leftists ripped into him for his votes and positions on healthcare and climate change, as well as for his unyielding support for President Trump.
But the Richvale congressman, who represents California’s massive 1st Congressional District in the northeast corner of the state, said he will support only a new healthcare program that provides affordable coverage to middle-class Americans.
LaMalfa said Obamacare is quickly become unaffordable and unsustainable, with premium costs rising and the number of insurance companies offering coverage declining.
“People across the board are being hurt by this,” LaMalfa said.
