    Democrat screams at constituent for asking tough question on health care

    Hot Air Blog Archive Video: Democrat screams at constituent for asking tough question on health care

    The embedded video is the local news stations story on it...

    You get Rep Scott making an utter ass of himself.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I saw this yesterday. I liked the part where he said, "call mr office and set up a meeting". Yeah, like that's gonna happen.

    Yeah, that congressperson overreacted. I agree. I don't blame him for being on the defensive given what has happened in the last few weeks though. If I was a congressperson who was attempting to do what is right for the country in the face of extremists, I may be a bit touchy too, especially at an event that had nothing to do with health care. That said, he could have just answered the guy's questions and it would have not devolved into his stupid rant. Oh well, there are going to be people on both sides that pull this crap. It's inevitable.

    I hope his constituents call him out on it and he makes a public apology and meets with that doctor. I think it would only be the right thing to do.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Several points.

    1) He did not scream.

    2) The meeting this took place at was not on the topic of health care.

    3) The questioner misrepresented Scott's position.

    4) Scott seemed to try and be respectful, answering the question in some detail, and only got angry when the guy continued to press the issue.

    Right, because only "extremists" are against this bill.

    Funny how you failed to mention how this meeting was as a direct result of a group doing just that, and how he followed up that comment with the dates of 2 public meetings he was having on the topic of healthcare.

    They do seem to be the ones showing up at events and being disruptive. Oh, and one poll does not tell the truth. Mid June, over 70% of Americans were for reform and come July that number is still upwards of 60% with some of those who disagree doing so due to the watered down bill. When you get some facts that actually are real, let us know.

    They seem to leave out all facts. Seems to be the mighty right wing machine.

    Perhaps you should read more than just the top line of any given link. You're apparently quite unfamiliar with PollingReport.com.


    Mid June, over 70% of Americans were for reform and come July that number is still upwards of 60% with some of those who disagree doing so due to the watered down bill. When you get some facts that actually are real, let us know.
    When you finally comprehend that there's a difference between favoring "health care reform" in general and favoring THIS version of it, YOU "let us know." I, for one, will not hold my breath waiting.

    Oh yeah, meetings with a date but no place.....that's real helpful and constituent service-like.
