Here’s another rowdy town hall meeting, this time from Arkansas.
Rep. Mike Ross (D-AR), the leader of the Blue Dogs, plus Rep. Vic Snyder (D-AR), were confronted by angry folks at a town hall meeting in Little Rock. It’s unclear whether this was any sort of organized effort, or whether it was a loose set of angry people who happened to all show up to the same meeting. The attendees’ overall theme was that their way of life was being destroyed:
“At this point in my life, I have never seen my America turned into what it has turned into, and I want my America back,” said one woman, on the verge of tears. “And I don’t think the Representatives and Senators are gonna be able to do it. I’m scared!”
When Snyder said, “Mike and I do not support a single-payer system, we are not interested in a single-payer system,” people began yelling back things like, “That’s bull,” and “That’s what Obama wants.” Ross put his head in his hands during the heckling.
