(KMSP) - Representative Jason Lewis from Minnesota’s 2nd district held his first town hall meetings Saturday.
Lewis went ahead with town hall meetings in Wabasha, Lakeville and Jordan despite his office having reported a “concerning call” to the U.S. Capitol Police on Thursday.
The congressman answered questions about a variety of topics, including the future of the Affordable Care Act. Lewis blasted the law, claiming it will lead to premium hikes later this year.
“This system is totally dysfunctional,” Lewis said. “What we have here, it’s totally dysfunctional. It’s not going to work and this fall you’re going to see it again.”
While these were his first in-person town hall sessions as a congressman, he has held 19 telephone town halls since taking office.
