OFA Protestors Laugh at Republican Explaining Wife’s Battle With Cancer

Cellphone footage taken at an Organizing for Action protest reveals the activists laughing and scoffing as a Republican politician tries to explain his family’s experience with the health care system during his wife’s battle with cancer.

Organizing for Action (OFA) is a nonprofit group which advocates for continuing the agenda of former President Obama. The group’s protestors stood outside Illinois Rep. Rodney Davis’ office to protest his vote in favor of the GOP’s new health care bill.

Rep. Davis tried to explain his vote by detailing his wife’s fight with cancer — but could hardly begin before the crowd interrupted him and laughed at him.

The lawmaker became clearly angry and chided the protesters for being so disrespectful. Watch the clip above.
