A small group of lawmakers in Maryland got an earful from their constituents during a town hall meeting that covered topics ranging from “Obamacare” to Benghazi to the NSA’s spying programs.
And we mean an earful. Voters vented some of the frustrations shared by Americans across the country — in a very vocal way.
“When is this government going to come clean with the American people and tell us what this secret law says, how it’s being secretly interpreted, how it’s being secretly implemented, and what it means to every person in this room!” an unidentified male said of NSA surveillance.
Rep. Andy Harris (R-Maryland) assured voters he is “very, very worried about what the NSA is doing.”
“We’re going to find out that the NSA was not complying with the law,” he added. “I don’t know about you, but I’m offended by the government knowing the record of every person, of having access to every person I call.”
However, Maryland resident Ed Hunter exploded over the “nice guys” routine being put on by the GOP, naming House Majority Leader John Boehner by name.
“I want Boehner up there defying this guy and saying, We’re going to impeachment with you if you do not start obeying the laws!” Hunter shouted. “Listen, we’re dying out here because you guys are being nice guys! This is not a Boy Scout meeting!”
Greta Van Susteren reports:
Another unidentified woman agreed and spoke up as well. “It’s not! And you’re acting like Boy Scouts! You’ve got to fight!”
Hunter then told lawmakers that the future of the country is at stake — so they should act like it.
“Because we’re losing the country,” he said. “I want to see more defiance!”
