McGovern and Neal: Two More Congresscommies Pummeled by Constituents

Democrat Congresscreeps continue to discover that Americans don't much like being sold into socialist slavery:

U.S. Reps. James P. McGovern and Richard E. Neal were heckled and booed after trying to rally support today for President Barack Obama's plan for a comprehensive national health insurance program.
The two Worcester-area Democratic lawmakers were shouted down several times by people attending a packed "town hall" meeting at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
UMass officials threatened several times to end the gathering because of the raucous behavior, which occurred despite a heavy police presence.
At one point, Mr. McGovern was likened by an attendee to Josef Mengele, the Nazi officer who performed experiments on concentration camp survivors.
Despite the generally hostile crowd, the two legislators insisted that a health care overhaul was desperately needed and that changes to the system would financially benefit all.
Most attending the meeting, however, disagreed — charging that the huge price tag for a new health care program would bankrupt the country.
They argued care options also would be limited and that life-sustaining support would be denied to senior citizens…

It's telling that our rulers think they need a "heavy police presence" to face their constituents. They must be having nightmares about the tar and feathers they so richly deserve.

Good thing they had cops to protect them from this scary-looking mob.
