Olean, N.Y. (WHAM) - A suspicious package left outside of U.S. Rep. Tom Reed's office in Olean turned out to be a stocking full of coal, according to the Oleans Time Herald.

According to the report, police responded to the office on Thursday afternoon for a report of a suspicious package.

A note attached to the package reportedly read "To the Grinch who voted 13 million to lose their health care, including kids. Bankruptcy and death to constituents.” A provision in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act repeals the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate provision, which the Congressional Budget Office estimates will cause about 13 million fewer people to be insured by 2027. ”
