Barney busting a move @ a recent TH Mtg...now remember these are his constituents some Barney quotes follow: "On what planet do you spend most of your time?" Frank asked the woman, who had stepped up to the podium at a southeastern Massachusetts senior center to ask why Frank supports what she called a Nazi policy.
"Ma'am, trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table. I have no interest in doing it," Frank replied.
He continued by saying her ability to deface an image of the president and express her views "is a tribute to the First Amendment that this kind of vile, contemptible nonsense is so freely propagated."
Some of those attending the meeting shouted and booed as Frank and others addressed the crowd.
At one point, Frank asked the crowd: "Which one of you wants to yell next?"
Several people wanted to know how the government would pay for the reforms without worsening a growing federal budget deficit.
At least two dozen protesters gathered in small groups outside, handing out pamphlets and holding signs criticizing the overhaul, Obama and Frank. Some of the posters read: "It's the economy stupid, stop the spending" and "Healthcare reform yes, government takeover, no. Tort Reform Now"
Frank goes incognito as he leaves the rally:
I have to say thank you to me ..." for not being stupid enough to go to Penn State."
