GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - For more than two hours, Congressman Justin Amash took questions from the crowd at a town hall in Grand Rapids.
The Republican hosted the event at Ottawa Hills High School on Wednesday, May 31.
One of the hot topics was climate and the recent rumblings that President Trump will pull out of the Paris Accord.
"The Paris Accord should have gone through the Senate anyway. It's a treaty and it should be put forward for ratification. There should be debate in the Senate," said Amash.
But the topic that elicited the most emotion was healthcare.
"I decided that I would not be voting for you because you voted yes to the AHCA, denying healthcare to anyone is immoral and healthcare as a for profit business is wrong," said one woman in the audience.
Many in the audience mentioned Amash's outspoken attitude in recent months in which he has disagreed with President Trump on several issues.
"My team is the American people and my job is to represent the 3rd district of Michigan, we have three separate branches of government and my job is to represent people at home, to defend their liberty, to uphold the constitution and we're not supposed to work for the other branches," said Amash.
