  • Protesters, supporters gather for McConnell event in Lawrenceburg

This billboard truck, which denounces the planned repeal of the Affordable Care Act, has been following McConnell to various speaking engagements. Well, the ones who are showing up to their town halls are getting chewed out.

Local Democrats told The Enquirer they expect people from all across the state to come to Covington to protest outside the Hotel Covington.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) faced some tough questions on Tuesday at a luncheon held in a Republican-heavy district in Kentucky.

McConnell answered questions from audience members in Jeffersontown. "It doesn't bother me one bit".

"If you'll answer that, I'll sit down and shut up like Elizabeth Warren", Perkins said, a reference to McConnell invoking Senate rules to silence the MA senator during her speech opposing Jeff Sessions' confirmation as U.S. Attorney General.

"They've had years and years and years to repeal Obamacare, I've never heard a solution to what they want to replace it with", Whalen said. And they worked those coal miners, and they're sick, the veterans are sick, the veterans are broken down, said Perkins. "If you can answer any of that, I'll sit down and shut up like Elizabeth Warren".

Senator McConnell addressed the crowd gathered inside the event and said, "As you might have noticed, there are a lot more people here than you might expect". She was referencing the now-infamous event on the Senate floor earlier this month when McConnell ordered the Democratic senator from MA to sit down during the fight over Jeff Sessions' confirmation as attorney general.

This still accurately expresses the shell shock.

"We want to talk to him about all that's happening and he's not paying attention to Kentucky", Knight said.

Hundreds of people converged on Covington, demanding to be heard by the senator who represents them, Mitch McConnell.
