COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn faced tough questions and jeers during his first town hall meeting of the year in Colorado Springs.

The Gazette reports that more than 140 people packed into a room at a police substation for Wednesday’s raucous meeting with the Republican lawmaker, including dozens of anti-Trump activists. At least 40 people waited outside, unable to fit in the room.

Whenever Lamborn referred to “Obamacare”, some in the crowd would shout back its official name “Affordable Care Act” or “ACA.”

Lamborn said long distance work was still being done by members of Congress on health care during the current recess.

After the meeting, Lamborn said he enjoyed it, calling it “democracy in action.” He is holding meetings in Canon City and Cripple Creek on Thursday.
