ENON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) -- Another heated town hall for Republican Representative Warren Davidson. Tuesday night, he faced criticism from constituents on a number of issues including health care.

Rep. Davidson says, not everyone is going to agree with him and he's open to listening to different perspectives.

But, some voters believe their concerns fell on deaf ears.

Katherine Eckstrand's son benefited from Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. Now, she's worried a new health care bill would eliminate his coverage.

"I believe if the president and congress have their way we will lost his health insurance," Eckstrand said.

She wasn't encouraged by Congressman Warren Davidson's response.

"I don't think the taxpayers here are entitled to give that to him," Davidson said.

Davidson is part of the House Freedom Caucus, they derailed the recent GOP health care bill and plan to propose a new one when Congress returns to session next week.

"We are looking for progress on a lot of things, fixing Obamacare and the healthcare problem people have," Davidson said.

Davidson spoke at the VFW in Enon, to a room mostly filled with Democrats, part of the Indivisible Group; a national movement to resit the Trump agenda.

"Some of these people surely didn't vote for me and probably won't, but they have concerns and want to voice them," Davidson said.

But, his district is majority Republican and his answers to most questions reflected that.

Skeptical republican Chris Prince didn't buy a thing he said.

"The only thing they worry about is their next election and how much they are going to raise between their next election," Price said.

Price voted for Trump and is concerned Congress won't get anything done.

Already failing to pass a major bill within Trump's first 100 days.

Katherine doesn't want Congress to Accomplish a thing, fearing the results.

"I do not want to see health care and tax reform package pass," Eckstand said.

Divisions still run deep and may not heal anytime soon.
