"Those components of the Affordable Care Act have meant so much. Not just to the 20 million people who had no health care coverage at all, but those folks with preexisting conditions," said Moore.

The standing room crowd was friendly, but weary at the same time on how the current administration is navigating topics like immigration.

"We've got to get this right. I want you guys to know that there is a clear distinction between having safe borders and being inhumane," Moore said.

      Top 1% Accountability Act, no co sponsors. Hammer the upper level taxpayers by submitting to a drug test as payback for conservatives to test snap benefit holders for the same. What has she really done to progress the inner city. Nothing just keep the bennies flowing.

    Funny how the article says the crowd was friendly yet when a GOP representative has a town hall meeting the whackos come out in droves. Looks like the lunitic left shows their true colors at those meetings.
