Rep. Andy Harris to hold a town hall meeting next month

Rep. Andy Harris, who has been under pressure from constituents concerned about the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, said Thursday he will hold a town hall meeting with voters at the end of March.

Harris has come under fire from some constituents for holding tele-town halls instead of an in-person meeting as Republicans across the country have faced pointed questions about the Obamacare repeal at similar gatherings. Earlier this month, Harris said he would hold an in-person meeting once Republicans unveiled a replacement plan.

In a statement Thursday, Harris said he plans to hold a "brick-and-mortar" town hall in Easton on March 31 because, he said, a replacement "should be available by the end of March." Republican leaders have presented an outline of a plan, but it's not clear they are close to a bill that it could pass their chamber, let alone the Senate. 

Former House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday predicted a full repeal of Obamacare wouldn't happen, calling it "happy talk."

Harris' announcement said the time and location of the in-person meeting had not yet been set. 

Harris, who repeatedly discussed his opposition to the health care law in four elections in the heavily-Republican 1st Congressional District. also announced two more tele-town halls. The first will take place on Monday at 5:30 p.m. and a second will occur Tuesday before President Trump addresses a joint session of Congress.

More than 200 people showed up for a town hall meeting on the future of the Affordable Care Act at Harford Community College Tuesday evening, but the one person who those in attendance needed to hear their concerns – U.S. Rep. Andy Harris – was not there.

"You work for us, we pay your salary, if...

The announcement did not provide dial-in information for those meetings.

"It's important to me that we have the proposed plan details in hand to share with attendees of the brick-and-mortar town hall so that I can answer their specific questions at the town hall, rather than offer only speculation, which is all we have at this time,” Harris said in a statement.

The announcement Thursday came days after more than 200 people attended a town hall-style meeting at Harford Community College to discuss the health law. That meeting was organized Citizens for Health Care, a Harford County group that has been pressuring Harris for  a meeting.

Rep. Andy Harris said the people who are showing up at town hall meetings held by Republican members of Congress to voice concern over the repeal of Obamacare are "organized" and funded by out-of-district interest groups, and said he will not conduct such a meeting until Republicans announce a...

Harris, an anesthesiologist, has frequently hosted both tele-town halls and in-person meetings since his first year in Congress. Aides said he has held more than 60 brick-and-mortar town halls and dozens of tele-town halls since 2011.
