Republicans home in their districts for the week faced more rowdy crowds at town halls on Wednesday night.
In events that drew hundreds of constituents, these GOPers were often pressed about their plans to repeal and replace Obamacare, and some faced shouts and jeers. At a town hall in Louisiana, attendees even turned their backs on Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) as he tried to give a PowerPoint presentation on his replacement plan. The protest forced him to ditch his planned talking points and answer questions instead.
