Several congressman hosted town halls across the nation last night, and some of the hottest issues that came up again and again were the uncertainty surrounding Obamacare and Trump's controversial executive orders.

Politico's Dan Diamond made a timeline of tweets documenting the rooms overflowing with angry constituents who pushed their representatives to protect their healthcare and dig deeper into Trump:

In a town hall in Michigan, retired health care industry worker and cancer survivor Paul Bonis called on Rep. Justin Amash to protect Obamacare, as his life could depend on it. When Amash said he couldn't do that, the room — filled with 600 mostly liberal constituents — broke out in boos. One protestor screamed, "You are no supporting your constituents!"

House oversight chair Jason Chaffetz was also challenged, according to Politico. His Utah constituents probed him on why he wasn't doing more to hold Trump accountable for his actions — mainly the president's potential conflicts of interest and his controversial immigration executive order. Chaffetz tried to calm the room by explaining how he has requested the ethics office to review Kellyanne Conway's behavior, but didn't address how he'd investigate Trump.

Antibody drugs and various medicine cocktails against the coronavirus are progressing and may provide some relief before vaccines.

The big picture: Everyone wants to know how and when they can return to "normal" life, as vaccines are not expected to be ready for most Americans for at least a year. Two therapies are known to be helpful, and more could be announced by late September, NIAID Director Anthony Fauci tells Axios.
