Skip to comments.Video: Dem Rep. Rush Holt Rips Mic from Hands of Woman Constituent at Town Hall!

Democrat Representative Rush Holt from New Jersey's 12th Congressional District ripped a microphone from the hands of a woman constituent at a town hall meeting a few days ago, denying her right to speak further. The town hall in question occurred this past Monday in a Marlboro, New Jersey, middle school. When constituent Rhoda Chodosh got up to ask her question concerning healthcare and also voice opposition to the kind of socialized healthcare that Obamacare is all about, what did she get for her right to be involved in her local community? Bully Democrat Representative Rush Holt ripped the microphone right out of her hands and denied her the right to continue telling her congressman exactly how she felt about his performance!

LOL. What is wrong with women these days? It seems we no longer know our place!
However, in all fairness, "rips mic from hands of woman constituent" seems a bit overboard. There was no ripping.
OK, Einstein, whatever. You win.
True, but he clearly shut her off before she made her point and did it in a manner that was overbearing, IMHO, and LOTS worse than Rick Lazio when he handed that paper to Hillary and supposedly intimidated her!
Actually, no. One small district in central NJ elected him.
Holt beat Zimmer by 481 votes. Also noteworthy is this, from wiki: “Redistricting before the 2002 elections made Holt safer, in part by adding much of Trenton.”
It's a pet peeve of mine. In that sweeping statement, many are tarred with the wrong brush since only well informed Freepers are the ones that read it. It implies that they are idiots.
Thanks to gerrymandering this dirtbag congressman is no longer my congressman.
He and his staff are consistently rude and disrespectful to his constituents.
He was bubba’s Grayson.
Your Tagline would be funny, if it weren't so true.
Saw a commercial in opposition to national health care by C. Everett Koop last evening. Since I am advancing in age,(like all of us) its getting scarier by the day!
The new Demonrat mantra! Woof, woof, let granny eat dog food...spoof on 'let them eat cake'. obama's war on seniors See the links in post 43-46 and on the last page.
Expanding support for families balancing work with caring for elderly relatives with a $102.5 million Caregiver Initiative adding $52.5 million in funding to Department of Health and Human Services caregiver support programs that provide temporary respite care, counseling, training, and referrals to critical services. The administration says the extra funding will allow nearly 200,000 additional caregivers to be served and 3 million more hours of respite care to be provided. It also adds $50 million to programs that provide transportation help, adult day care, and in-home services, such as aides to help seniors bathe and cook, help which eases the burden for family members and helps seniors stay in their homes.
Even the commie rag Mother Jones is reporting the cut and gut to granny's SS/Medicare.
Bambi in his own words I' won't cut Medicare
Confusing. Holt’s webpage says the Jan 26 meeting was a telephone town hall meeting and has a link to the audio. Nothing on there about this townhall meeting referred to in the article.
If they weren’t trying to f**kover the American people he would have no reason to censor her, would he?
He wouldn’t have a raging constituency, would he?
Scared little squirrel!
It would be just another boring town hall meeting, just as it should be.
I am SO entirely sick and tired of these clearly un-American a-holes.
He would not have taken that mike from me.
He represented the modern American politician and she represented the modern American, perfectly.
Stop letting them walk all over you!
Rush Holt is a nasty, smug, arrogant, venomous, hateful, spiteful scumbag. Other than that, he is a great guy.
So what could you have done.....Grabbed the microphone which in turn would have looked like you were creating a violent situation, and then security would have escorted you out....Or maybe even have placed you under arrest.....If people do not start seeing truth as it is, and voting these communists out we are in BIG trouble.....
She was on Fox yesterday.
She moved to New Jersey from Canada and knows the Canadian Health Care System. Apparently the Rep said the Health Care Program here won’t be like Canada’s.
It didn't last long as I got redistricted back into the 6th.
Sometimes you just can't win.

Extremely overboard.... I hate it when we exaggerate!
The ‘ Acorn’ people of Jersey elected this creep.
Think! Because it’s still legal.
Represses more than represents.
