Mr. Scott became visibly agitated when one of his constituents, a practicing doctor, asked a few questions about health care reform during a town hall meeting. The meeting was held to discuss a road project, but was opened up for questions near the end. That's when Dr. David Hill stood up to speak.
Dr. Hill asked Mr. Scott why he was going to vote for a health care plan similar to that implemented in Massachusetts "that is shown not to work" and if he supported a government-provided health care insurance option.
The congressman replied by accusing the doctor of "hijacking" his event."I'm listening to my constituents, OK?" Scott said, "These are people who live in the 13th Congressional district, who vote in this district. That’s who I’ve got to respond to … So what you’ve got to understand, those of you who are here, who have taken and came and hijacked this event we dealing with here, this is not a health care event."
"You chose to come and to do it on your own," he yelled. "Not a single one of you had the decency to call my office and set up for a meeting." He went on, in a threatening voice, "You want a meeting with me on health care, I'll give it to you!"
The doctor is a constituent and says he had actually already tried to call the Congressman to talk to him but couldn't get ahold of him, so he went to the townhall meeting to do so.
What good did it do? Can't get a personal one-on-one, and get screamed at for asking a perfectly legitimate question.
What a paranoid fringe lunatic birther, that Democrat Congressman, eh? Thinks everyone's an "Astroturfer" just because they ask inconvenient questions.
Probably thinks it's just his job to simply vote for whatever George Soros, through Obama and other proxies, demand he support. Probably thinks the townhall meetings are just "going through the motions of pretending to 'serve' the People".
Sheesh! Democrats... they think anyone who asks an inconvenient question is a "right-wing extremist", a "birther", a "mobster", a "Nazi", and now an "Astroturfer". Oops, I forgot "teabagger". Did I forget any other of those slur words used against those who dare to dissent from the Obama Regime and its agenda?
