U.S. Representative Andy Harris held a town hall meeting Friday night at Chesapeake College in Wye Mills, Maryland, to talk about a number of issues important to his constituents. (Ulysses Muñoz / Baltimore Sun)
I was at Rep. Andy Harris's town hall with my group, the Wicomico Progressive Caucus, and several other political groups from the Eastern Shore ("Hundreds confront Harris at health care town hall," March 31). Mr. Harris claims that we are pathetic and shameful. We weren't some out-of-district agitators. We are angry constituents who are tired of being sold out and used by our congressman.
Mr. Harris has voted against the environment 100 percent of the time during this House term. He's sold our Internet privacy, has taken huge campaign contributions from big pharmaceutical lobbyists, refuses to demand Donald Trump's tax returns to clear the air of Russia ties that threaten our sovereignty, wants to take health care away from over 32 million Americans including more than 300,000 in this state, and has sought to defund Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides birth control, cancer screenings and other essential health care to thousands of Marylanders every year through Medicaid and Title X.
The congressman has been a complete fraud who puts his political party over the interests of the Eastern Shore every time.
