  • Rep. Bucshon cheered, jeered at Evansville town hall
    “This was the most turnout I’ve ever had. It was a little bit of a rambunctious discussion, but that’s all right. Our country’s great, right? In other countries you get drug away. I had people who agreed and disagreed with me. I believe in the process, and we had a good discussion tonight. The Medicaid growth at the federal level is astronomical. The hope is that people will have an alternative to Medicaid, to take shackles off insurance companies to offer more affordable prices.” - U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon, after a packed town hall meeting in Evansville Friday night where he was both cheered and jeered. Bucshon is against repealing Obamacare without a replacement and as for a potential single payer system, said, “I think it’s a really bad idea to turn the system of health care over to the U.S. government.” Listen and watch Rep. Bucshon's reaction and the entire town hall below in the HPI Video Feed.

  • Volatile meetings of Members, the press, and the Hoosier people
    We give great credit to U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon for conducting a rollicking town hall meeting in Evansville Friday night where he found supporters and detractors. Other Members, notably U.S. Reps. Pete Visclosky and Jim Banks, have held town halls during this GOP health reform sequence. Others, like U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski, haven’t. That’s a sad development, that the people’s representatives fear their own constituents. And there’s reason for that, such as the shooting of U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords and the assault on the Republican baseball team earlier this summer that critically wounded U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise. We in the press have ventured out into volatile territory and know what it’s like to face a critical public. Throughout 2016, I attended five Donald Trump rallies (until I was banned by the campaign), and he would openly goad his supporters to confront the press, calling us thugs, liars and the worst of humanity. The positive news on this front is that Hoosiers are good folks. When Trump would aim his rhetoric at us in the press pen, people would turn and look. Some would wave and smile. I never heard a single insult or threat. A number of Indiana reporters and photographers had good-natured conversations with Trump supporters as we awaited the candidate. I never felt unsafe. Hoosiers are civic minded and good stewards of the process. - Brian A. Howey, publisher, writing in Nashville, Ind.

Trump taxes

Should Donald Trump release recent tax returns, like every major party nominee has done over the past 40 years?
