Second District Congressman Charlie Bass took some heat at a town hall meeting last week and Reuters’ Samuel Jacobs was there to capture the scene. Bass was confronted by a nurse who spoke in talking points and appeared to be reading from talking points, as well. She claimed Bass was going to “end Medicare as we know it”; a common phrase among professional Democrats.
“It’s a complete fabrication,” Bass said. “That’s political dogma.”
Jacobs goes on to imply Republicans may face a backlash similar to the tea party uprising in 2010 that resulted in a disasterous off year election for President Obama and the Democrats.
