The event comes on the heels of Senate Republicans' failure to repeal and replace Obamacare

Pelosi is set to take voters' questions on major issues facing the country

Washington CNN —  

CNN will host a town hall event featuring House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday, October 4.

The event comes on the heels of Senate Republicans’ failure to repeal and replace Obamacare and Democrats’ deal with President Donald Trump to attach hurricane relief money to a shorter-term bump in the debt ceiling as well as keeping the government open.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo will moderate the 60-minute live event at 9 p.m. ET from Washington.

Pelosi is set to take voters’ questions on major issues facing the country.

After the Graham-Cassidy bill failed, Pelosi, a major player in legislative negotiations, called on Trump to join a bipartisan effort help stabilize marketplaces and help families enrolling this year. Trump told reporters Wednesday he’s prepared to negotiate with Democrats on health care.

As the White House rolled out its plans on tax reform, Pelosi was immediately critical Wednesday, calling it “a framework that gives away the store to the wealthiest, while sticking the middle class with the bill.”

The event will air on CNN, CNN en Español and CNN International, and will stream live for subscribers via CNNgo (at CNN.com/go and via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Samsung Smart TV and Android TV) and on the CNN mobile apps for iOS and Android.

The debate will also air on CNN’s SiriusXM Channel 116. The town hall will also be available October 5 on demand via cable/satellite systems, CNNgo platforms and CNN mobile apps.
