COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador was criticized for the Republican health care bill at a recent town hall meeting.

The Spokesman-Review reports (https://bit.ly/2pkmqgb ) Labrador defended his support for the bill despite the heavy criticism coming from the crowd at the Friday town hall meeting. Labrador told the audience that the bill will reduce health insurance costs for a majority of Americans. He repeatedly said that health care is not a Constitutional right.

The mother of a child with a life-threatening disorder told Labrador that the bill would lower her son’s access to lifesaving medications. Labrador responded by saying he also owed a responsibility to the many Americans harmed by the Affordable Care Act.

The attendees also raised concerns on President Donald’s tax returns and his alleged ties with Russia.
