BAIER: Now for another example of a legislator having some troubles at a health care town hall meeting, a video making the rounds on YouTube shows Indiana Democratic Congressman Baron Hill firing back after a woman who said she was a journalism student complained that Hill's staff would not allow her to videotape the event.

VOICE OF TOWNHALL PARTICIPANT: I'm not disrupting. I'm keeping to myself, but now that I'm not getting to do this for a project, I was going to ask a question. Why can't I film this? Isn't this my right?

VOICE OF BARON HILL (D), INDIANA REPRESENTATIVE: Well, this is -- this is my town hall meeting, and I set the rules and I've had these rules.

Let me repeat that one more time. This is my town hall meeting for you. And you're not going to tell me how to run my congressional office.
