Republicans cower in fear of their constituents

Feb 02, 2017

Around the country, Republicans are running scared from their constituents because they know their dangerous “Trump First” policies are opposed by mainstream Americans.

Whether it’s stripping away health care from 32 million Americans, giving tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires, or supporting Donald Trump’s autocratic rule that is making our country less safe, Republicans are afraid of their constituents holding them accountable.

Unfortunately for Republicans, it’s only week two of Donald Trump’s presidency and Republicans won’t be able to duck their constituents’ accountability forever. Republican lawmakers need to stop hiding and face their constituents since things are set to only get worse for the American people.

Examples of some of the Republicans who have fled or refused to meet with their constituents:

Rep. Dave Brat (VA): “The women are in my grill no matter where I go.”
Sen. Tom Cotton’s (AR) office
Rep. Mimi Waters’ (CA) office
