FOLSOM, California — More than two dozen protestors gathered outside Rep. Dan Lungren’s (R-CA) Folsom town hall on Thursday to express their disappointment at his recent votes in Congress. The crowd decried the congressman’s support for Paul Ryan’s budget and told the California Republican to “stop the war on women” after Lungren voted to defund Planned Parenthood. Scott Sanders, a Navy veteran, was particularly incensed: “They say they support veterans, and yet Lungren supports Ryan’s budget which cuts $11 billion from the Veterans Administration,” he yelled to the crowd of protestors.
