Hostile Crowds at Healthcare Town Halls Nationwide
From the loud jeering and booing, you may have thought the crowd at a Lebanon, Pennsylvania town hall yesterday was watching a local baseball game, when they were actually there, in fact, to show their disapproval for President Obama’s healthcare plan.
“One day God will stand before you and judge you!” one man shouted at Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania before security guards approached and he left the room, reported the Boston Globe.
They aren’t alone in expressing their disdain for the plan; other angry outbursts have happened at healthcare forums across the country, leaving some to wonder if President Obama’s polite and contention-free crowd at his recent town hall meeting in New Hampshire was purposely planted with supporters.
