    Two Democratic congressmen became the first members of their party to call for Veterans Affairs secretary Eric Shinseki’s resignation shortly after President Obama’s meeting with the embattled department head. While speaking on the House floor about a bill he co-sponsored to make it easier to fire VA officials, Representative David Scott of Georgia offered a passionate plea to address the problem and called for Shinseki’s ouster. SNIP Meanwhile, Scott’s fellow Georgian John Barrow also said Shinseki should no longer hold his position since he and the rest of the administration have “fallen short in providing the kind of care our...

    David Scott’s not the only Democrat in revolt either. Rep. John Barrow also called for Shinseki to go today, and the left’s favorite cable news network devoted the better part of a segment to explaining that underfunding, the all-purpose scapegoat whenever liberals are in a political jam, doesn’t explain why veterans are being shafted. The White House is in trouble.

    House Democrats passed the 2,032-page Pelosicare bill on a near party-line vote Saturday night 220-215 (roll call here). The only Republican voting in favor of the measure was New Orleans-based Joseph Cao who has long ago proven to be a tax and spend (and spend and spend) liberal. After a week of intense arm twisting, threats and promises from party leaders, more than half of the 52 so-called conservative Blue Dog Democrats voted in favor of the over $1.3 trillion measure. These are the 28 Blue Dogs voting in favor of Pelosicare (who apparently fear the wrath of House Speaker...

    For the past four years, U.S. Rep. David Scott (D-Ga.) has used his annual 13th Congressional District Health Fair to bring free health care services to the Southern Crescent. This year, the health fair served as a stage for a national debate over health care reform. Scott's fifth annual health fair on Saturday at Mundy's Mill High School in Jonesboro also was a health care town hall meeting. While more than 1,000 people came to the school's cafeteria to receive a variety of free medical screenings, more than 600 crowded into the school's gymnasium to hear Scott's views on health...

    Health Care Debates AboundBy Susanna Capelouto Updated: 5 hours ago Sat., Aug 15 2009 9:47am (EDT) Healthcare debates take centerstage today around Metro Atlanta. Several conservative groups that include members of the tea party movement as well as conservative radio talkshow hosts, will hold a health care rally this afternoon in Centennial Olympic Park in Downtown Atlanta. This morning Democratic Congressman David Scott holds a health care forum at a high school in Jonesboro. Scott has been pushed to the front of the health care debate this week when a swastika was painted over a sign with his name at...

    As citizens psssionately sought to exercise their First Amemdment rights to "assemble and to petition the Government for redress of grievances" at Town Hall meetings, the MSM tried with equal passion to contemptuously dismiss their collective voice as that of an illegitimate "mob." The video clip clearly shows what typically happened when a congressman attacked a constituent for DARING TO QUESTION the socialistic "ObamaCare" medical proposal. In this instance the constituent was Dr. Brian Hill, M.D., who had a natural concern for the inevitable decline in doctor-patient care, bureaucratic rationing of health care, and enormous tax increases for all citizens....

    Rep. David Scott, a Georgia Democrat, who came under scrutiny after accusing a local doctor of "hijacking" a recent town hall meeting is standing by his remarks and says some of the conservative protesters are motivated by racism. Mr. Scott, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, appeared on Fox Business's "Happy Hour" Monday afternoon to give his side of the story after a Washington Times report of his contentious town hall was linked by the highly-trafficked Drudge Report over the weekend. During the interview the congressman said "drama" over health care reform was being manufactured by right-wing protesters and...

    No link, just heard on Fox News
    If true it would be exactly the sort of thing the far left would do to make it 'appear' as if ordinary, constitution-defending conservatives are nazi-loving lunatics. Also to support Nancy Pelosi's insane allegations about the town hall protesters. I wouldn't be surprised if his own staffers did it. Bad thing is, a large part of the public will believe it was done by actual conservatives. No link available yet. It was something just reported on Fox News Channel.
  • David Scott on a racial undertone in the debate over health care reform

    Just got off the phone a few minutes ago with U.S. Rep. David Scott of metro Atlanta, who underlined what he said are some worrisome racial undertones in the current health care debate. As noted this morning, Scott was the topic of a WXIA TV report over the weekend, which detailed an Aug. 1 confrontation with opponents of health care reform at a town hall meeting in Douglasville. Scott angrily accused protestors of attempting to “hijack” the meeting.

    Tensions are running so high at town hall meetings that Rep. David Scott, a Georgia Democrat, yelled at a local doctor concerned about health care after mistaking him for an "astroturf" political operative looking for a fight. 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...

    And by “constituent,” I of course mean crypto-Nazi political terrorist. You’ll find the full unedited exchange right here but I’m giving you the news segment because it provides important context. Like, for example, that the guy who asked Scott the question actually is one of his constituents, contrary to what the distinguished gentleman implies. And that his “hijacking” of this town hall (which wasn’t devoted to health care) came during a Q&A session in which attendees were in fact allowed to ask about anything. But aside from that, he’s very, very Nazi, baby.

    As national media outlets and their employees depict town hall meeting protesters as right-wing outsiders organized by conservative organizations, the Atlanta affiliate of NBC aired a segment Friday evening that should act as a fine example of how this uprising in America should be covered. 11 Alive reporter Duffie Dixon not only showed a heated exchange between Rep. David Scott (D-13th District) and a man asking him about his position on pending healthcare legislation in the House, but also interviewed the questioner when Scott erroneously contended the man was not a constituent and was only trying to hijack his meeting....

    Dem rep. accuses constituents of 'hijacking' town hall meeting @ 10:23 am by Jordan Fabian Rep. David Scott (D-Ga.) launched a tirade at a town hall meeting about a highway project in his district on Friday, accusing audience members who asked about healthcare reform of being outsiders who "hijacked" his meeting. "Those of you here who have taken, who have came, who hijacked this event that we're dealing with here," Scott said. "I'm listening to my constituents. These are people who live in the 13th congressional district, who vote in this district," he added. In fact, Scott directed his remark...

    Here is video of Georgia Democrat Rep. David Scott in total meltdown mode after a medical doctor in an open forum asked Scott pointed questions about ObamaCare. The doctor asked Scott if "he was going to be voting" on a health care bill, and Scott said "I don't know." When the doctor persisted, Scott completely lost it and began yelling at the doctor and others in the crowed, accusing them of "hijacking" the meeting. This video shows much of Scott's meltdown, and also contains an interview with the doctor. NOTE: During his tirade, Rep. Scott said his meetings were for...

    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 Obama’s 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...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A watchdog group asked the Justice Department on Thursday to investigate whether a Georgia congressman broke the law by not paying taxes and using his office's resources for campaign activities. The complaint comes after media reports revealed that an advertising company owned by the family of Rep. David Scott, D-Ga., owed more than $150,000 in back taxes and penalties, despite getting nearly $500,000 in business from the Atlanta congressman's campaign since he won office in 2002. The Politico Web site first reported the story in May. In its complaint, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington also...
