Congressman Ryan Costello will not be pinned down to “a certain forum at a certain time”. Instead the congressman has evaded “political stunts” by popping up in virtual Town Halls – via telephone and Facebook where participants and questions are pre-registered.
The Concerned Citizens Action Group for PA 6th has scheduled a traditional face-to-face Town Hall for tomorrow, Saturday, 25Feb17, 1-3 PM, at Phoenixville High School. Mr Costello has said “I already have commitments”. His planned whereabouts were not reported.
Mr. Costello’s supporters have taken several steps to protect him. They have insisted that PASD collect fees for use of the High School. They have registered a complaint with Federal Election Commission. A spokesman suggested Right To Know requests for “emails and cell phones”. They have even called out as “unseemly” that a PASD school board member did not disclose his wife’s activities. Nevertheless She Persisted.
Concerned Citizens has requested that questions be collected prior to Town Hall. My Question: Mr Costello claimed to me that only 250,000 have pre-existing conditions covered by ACA plans! Per USNews an World Report, 1/4 of Americans have pre-existing conditions. Mr Costello, what is your source for such an absurdly low estimate?
The weather forecast for the Town Hall is heavy rain, outside. Inside the forecast is uncertain.
