Barney Frank Faces A Tough Crowd In Massachusetts

If you’re a House or Senate Democrat and you support ObamaCare, how do you know your bill is in trouble?   When Barney Frank of uber liberal Massachusetts has to move his town hall meeting twice to accommodate the massive crowd.  And when the meeting finally gets rolling he feels the wrath of their outrage over health care, the deficit, cap and trade and the government  in general.  In typical Bombastic Barney fashion he interrupts his constituents and hurls insults at them throughout the meeting and doesn’t pass up an opportunity to blame the Iraq war for the supposed 46 million uninsured in this country.

Meanwhile, my congressman, John Tierney, is still in hiding.

Update: Another person posing as a doctor got up and declared her undying support for ObamaCare at Barney’s town hall.  How many does that make?  Note no Republicans have pretended to be doctors at these meetings.

  1. As usual Mr. Frank likes to hear himself talk- he could just listen to what he said, he may just crawl under a rock and stay there. Last night was just another O’Reilly perfromance. Maybe before his next Town Hall meeting, he should read the 1000 page bill, so we can really have a discussion.

  2. It is funny watching Barney Frank when he gets tough questions. He starts spewing spit, filibustering, and looks totally discombobulated – ready to pop a Xanax.

  3. All obama will do is outsource anyways. Just think about the all the lobbyists flocking to Washington DC because of obama’s reckless over-spending of $2 TRILLION in just 6 months, which alone is increasing the National Debt by 20%.

    Politicians take people’s money and reward the large corporations, in this case companies in the health care industry, since they have the money to more effectively lobby politicians. In the end smaller businesses will be hurt.

    Politicians will only reward companies that will be in their best political interest. Honestly, when can you really trust politicians since they are basically professional liars, and being president just means you are the best liar of the time. Why not just give the money directly from the people to the companies and take politicians in government out of the equation?

    obama is going to recklessly spend TRILLIONS of tax payers’ money just to give insurance to about 25% of those who do not have it. Over 50% of people’s income go towards taxes, just imagine how many more people will afford health care insurance if their income is almost doubled because of dramatic tax cuts.

    Competition is what is needed. It lowers prices of products and services, along with developing new innovations. All of which will benefit consumers. You need to remember that monopolistic tendencies can also apply to government.

    The reason why the cost of insurance is high is because politicians in government mandate insurance companies to increase their premiums to pay for ridiculous things. In addition, politicians put up regulations so that Americans are not allowed to get insurance from another state and use the coverage in their own state. This reduces competition making it more expensive for people to get insurance. On top of that medical professionals are not allowed to freely practice their profession in any US state without taking a long and tedious licensing process. This again increases the cost of medical insurance.

    In the end, the problem with most economic issues is too much government intervention of the economy by politicians, who will only tend to do things for political self interest. Just like how obama nationalized GM to pander to its unions. Politicians can barely run government, yet people think they can run a multi-national auto manufacturing company?

    The solution is SMALLER government, LESS spending, and LOWER taxes.
