Congressman Rodney Davis spoke to people in Central Illinois about the failure of the AHCA and other topics during a tele-town hall meeting on Monday.
People were able to join a conference call with Davis, in order to ask questions, while he’s out of state. More than 14,000 people participated.
Davis says he’s very disappointed in both the Democrats that wouldn’t work with the bill and the Republicans who wouldn’t support it. He says the GOP bill would have addressed many of the issues that Obamacare is facing.
Now, as the White House turns to tax reform, Davis says Congress has a difficult road ahead.
“We’ve got a framework put together. Kevin Brady is developing that. Our better way agenda has some ideas that we agree on. The goal is to make the individual code player fairer, flatter and simpler,” he explains.
Davis also answered questions about environmental regulations, student debt, and infrastructure investments.
