During a recent Town Hall meeting in a local beach community several citizens attended a meeting in hopes of speaking to Rep Bradley Byrnes ! They arrived to find that only members of his staff would be there ! The citizens talked with the staffer for about an hour ! Shortly after the topic of the ACA came up ; the Mayor of the town went on what was described as a tirade ! He became hostile and started calling the attendees ignorant and alluding to having law enforcement remove them !  This unprofessional exchange was all because a few people wanted to discuss fixing the ACA instead of repealing it ! The mayor is in favor of repeal and stated that people can access healthcare without money upfront ! More Republican #AlternativeFacts !! I. ask again is this appropriate behavior for any elected official?  Click link to see vid clip from the meeting    https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B2XJjOjl-7IaTVltWGpwWEpOjVHc  vid by Jackie Gano  !  ***Disclaimer The above post is An account of attendees experience using their words as I was not present ! ****
