Roy Blunt MIA

Roy Blunt, you are a public servant and we have the right as your constituents to meet with you for you to answer our questions and concerns regarding the appeal of the ACA without a viable replacement and many other important issues, particularly what the status is of an independent investigation into the Russian government interfering in the election of our POTUS and possibly other high-ranking politicians and cabinet members.
