The scene of a Metro Atlanta town hall meeting quickly deteriorated when Democratic Congressman David Scott (GA-13) suddenly became enraged, and, in a breathtaking display of congressional machismo, began berating constituents.
Scott displayed his temper during a question-and-answer period when David Hill, a local resident and doctor, questioned the congressman over his support of President Barack Obamas proposed single-payer health care system.
Why are you voting for a health care plan that is shown not to work in Massachusetts and why are you going to institute that in a nation-wide manner?
With a look of confusion on his face, the congressman first quietly asked an aide, Is that the type of bill they got going on? Then, reassured by staff that the bill Hill referenced was, in fact, the bill before Congress, Scott proceeded to respond, insomuch as the Congressmans angry tirade may be called a response.
Im listening to my constituents, OK, Scott said, with a heavy and awkward emphasis on my. These are people who live in the 13th Congressional district, who vote in this district. Thats who Ive got to respond to, OK. Right, alright.
Grimacing and sternly brandishing his finger at Dr. Hill, Scotts anger intensified, as did his rhetoric.
So what youve 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 made the choice to come here and take advantage of this meeting that these people in Douglasville worked hard to put together to deal with this road, Scott said, referencing the relocation of a local highway in Douglassville, GA.
You chose to come and to do it on your own. Not a single one of you had the decency to call my office and set up for a meeting, OK. Do that. Do that!
Actually, this stupid crap from democrats that have BS'ed themselves into a corner is becoming quite common.
