WIllingboro Councilman Anderson on ACA Repeal Effort: ‘A Bunch of White Men Did This’

At U.S. Rep. Tom MacArthur’s (R-3) town hall on Wednesday evening, Willingboro Councilman Nathaniel Anderson approached the congressman with a choice question.

“A bunch of white men did this,” Anderson said. “How do you explain this? It looks like you were trying to rush this bill through. My question is once it goes back to the house, would you consider changing it based on your town halls?”

MacArthur said, “First, with regard to the process, I agree with you. That’s why I voted no in January.”

The congressman noted that Obamacare passed with no Republican votes, and TrumpCare passed with no Democratic votes.

“I do hope we get back to a real bipartisanship,” said MacArthur, who had moments earlier weathered a barrage of attendees at the town hall chanting, “na, na, na, na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye.”

“It just seems there was more of a rush to get it through before the mid-term and I don’t think that was fair,” Anderson pursued.

“I did try to make it more fair. I added $160 billion. My efforts have been to try to improve the bill,” MacArthur said.

  1. I agree, if we get a bipartisanship bill then it would better serve the people. I am glad that Councilman Anderson approached the Congressman to find out where he really stood regarding the bill and what efforts he made to improve the bill. Clearly, Obamacare needed tweeking only, and I believe that it was a biased effort to have it repealed. Hopefully this conversation will initiate a more open means of communication locally between our local officials and congressman MacArthur.
