In a departure from what has become a familiar scene in the national debate over health care, nobody clashed at a town hall meeting hosted by South Bay Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters on Saturday.
Instead, the more than 400 people who attended the event at Los Angeles Southwest College near Inglewood applauded, chanted and gave standing ovations during Waters' presentation, which lasted far longer than the two hours it was scheduled for.
"The health care system is broken and it's got to be fixed," she said. "It's not simply about the 47 million people who are uninsured, it's about people who can afford health care, who are paying premiums every month but finding that their premium costs keep increasing. God forbid you have a catastrophe."
In good spirits, Waters said she had a theory why the tense atmosphere of other meetings was absent from Saturday's event.
"I sent them a message," she said to cheers. "Don't try that with Maxine Waters."
Other politicians have faced angry questioners when they hosted similar events in recent weeks. And protesters have used the events as opportunities to criticize not only health care reform, but other policies of President Barack Obama. ...........

Nor, the lie that 47 million people are uninsured.
Who cares? The crowd is representative of her worthless district and she’s a member of the CPUSA!
Hack ghetto socialists like Maxine Waters are truly one of the enemies within....
Wow, such tough talk, Maxine -- but what your stupid little racist, socialist pea-brain fails to understand is that you are simply admitting that you can't handle opposition, dissent or disagreement.
Let's see you try to give that same town hall meeting in middle America rather than in Inglewood!
Monkey see - Monkey do !
That is a Racist statement.
-—— then again Maxine is a Black Racist.
Probably because her audience was representative of her voters who by voting for Maxine proved themselves to be idiots.
TEA PARTY! SACRAMENTO, CA. Aug. 28th (Friday)
from noon to 5 p.m. at the state capitol in Sacramento
The time for change is now. We simply arent going to take it anymore.
On August 28, 2009, in true Tea Party Patriots tradition, we will bring together people and groups who have never come together before. Taxpayers who are taxed enough already and cannot afford the $3,858 per year energy tax and farmers, ranchers, miners, loggers, trucking companies, cement makers and builders! All productive, hard working people from all political parties, social affiliations and industries will descend on the state Capitol in Sacramento. We have a simple message; leave us alone. Were tired of your intrusion into our lives and your ever expanding greed for the fruits of our labors. Its time for real change. You can change, or well get rid of you. Your choice.
Its time that the politicians and bureaucrats got off the backs of Californias productive people and freed them to produce the innovation, wealth and jobs that only they can.
Not only did she promise these leeches free health care and free cars, but she also promised them free access to your bank account and your 401K if they'd just keep voting for her the Messiah.

When asked if he was expecting any support, the man laughed.
"No, I'm all alone," he said.
Ignorant a** fools.
In her district free bullet hole repair is an important part of health care.
