WATCH: GOP Lawmaker Expels Protestors From Town Hall After They Start Chanting For Single Payer Healthcare

Republican Sen. Joni Ernst kicked out a group of protestors from a Friday town hall meeting in Iowa City after the crowd started chanting for single payer healthcare.

“The 750-strong crowd peppered Ernst with questions throughout the hourlong forum, and frequently punctuated her answers with boos, shouts, and jeers,” The Des Moines Register reported.

“Most of the discussion centered on health care, and the Graham-Cassidy proposal that has dominated the national discussion this week,” The Register noted. “She was also asked about universal health coverage through a ‘Medicare for All’ program — an idea that won hearty cheers and applause in the room but which Ernst dismissed as ‘pie in the sky.’”

Ernst grew frustrated as the crowd would boo every time the Senator would bring up the GOP’s healthcare bill. People at the town hall wanted nothing to do with the Graham-Cassidy bill, instead, they sided with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and single payer for health care reform.

“Really, if I said anything — if I said the sky was blue with regard to this health care bill — you would disagree,” Ernst claimed.

Eventually, the Senator had two protesters escorted out by police, including one protester costumed as a spaceman.

Watch at the 16-minute mark where police kicks out the protestors:
