As some know there are liberal activists that are working together to get involved in a nationwide effort to disrupt town hall meetings as they see fit. Rep. Tom MacArthur was a speaker at one of the more recent ones and in a disturbing moment, a mob of liberals mocked him after he shared with the unruly crowd the story about his deceased special needs daughter.
He shared this very personal story with them, to help them understand his decision to amend and vote for the American Health Care Act that was passed earlier this month. However, when he started to share the story about Gracie, who had died at 11 years-old, someone yelled “Shame!” accusing the lawmaker of “using” his special needs daughter and her death to promote his political agenda…
Obviously, these people have dark gaping holes where their hearts should be. To be honest, how dare THEY try to shame a father who has endured such a loss. Don’t worry though, he is no rookie when it comes to dealing with monsters such as these people. His comeback was on point!
“I will say shame on you right now actually,” MacArthur said. “I’m going to tell you because this affects my perspective on this issue of health care.”
The Congressman offered the “MacArthur amendment” in the GOP bill that now will be taken up by the Senate.
The amendment, in part, offers protections for people with pre-existing conditions and would “create an option for states to obtain Limited Waivers from certain federal standards, in the interest of lowering premium costs and expanding the number of insured persons.”
When MacArthur tried to explain the facts about the health legislation, he was shouted down.
At one point, police were called in to ensure MacArthur’s safety, the ABC-affiliate in New Jersey reported.
Earlier this month, NBC reported on MacAurthur, who worked in the health insurance industry and the story about his daughter’s health struggles and tragic death.
“The two-term moderate, whose district stretches from the Philadelphia suburbs to the Jersey shore, has worked with conservatives to make compromise changes to the once-shelved GOP bill,” NBC reported.
“When asked about his motivation to go out on a limb for the bill, MacArthur hesitated as if he were holding something back,” NBC reported. “Then he cautiously told NBC News that his drive to push the legislation comes from traumatic events in his own family.”

His daughter Gracie was his first born and she was born with holoprosencephaly, which is a rare brain condition. Gracie was not expected to live, but bless her heart, she exceeded expectations for 11 years. It was then that she succumbed from complications that included several severe seizures.
At that time, MacArthur had insurance, but it did not cover all of the expenses that accrued over time. In the end, they had more than $1 million on balance owed.
MacArthur also said his mother, who died from cancer when he was child, had no insurance and he had to watch as his father worked for years to pay off their medical debt.
He told NBC that his amendment to the health care bill “will help to reduce the cost of insurance because people with high-cost health bills would not be in the private insurance market but instead in a federally- and state-funded high-risk pool, or some other mechanism that states create to cover the more expensive cases” and that that would help drive down costs for healthier people with insurance.
NJ.com reported that New Jersey Citizen Action, which bills itself as a “statewide grassroots organization that fights for economic and social justice,” organized the disruption.
Watch how it all unfolded from the demon spawn mocking a father and the death of his daughter, to that father LEVELING them with his truth. Shame on those asshats.
