Ted Cruz Gets An Earful At Town Hall Meeting

Ted Cruz Gets An Earful at Town Hall Meeting
Views:

As Texas senator Ted Cruz and others continue their quixotic quest to defund 'Obamacare', he's now heckled at his townhall events by what he calls fake grassroot Obama supporters. In response the largely pro-Cruz events drown out the protesters with chants of 'USA! USA!' Apparently we live in parallel universes where in one universal healthcare is not an American value.

A Dallas town hall meeting designed to rally support for defunding President Obama’s health-care law grew testy Tuesday night when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) was interrupted three separate times by hecklers.

The conservative senator handled each interruption calmly, asking that he be allowed to finish his remarks.

“You have health care, we should too!” chanted a pair protesters near the end of Cruz’s remarks.

Cruz responded, “Thank you for sharing your views. You know, part of the First Amendment is about respecting others.”

Pro-Cruz attendees then drowned the protesters out with chants of “USA! USA!”
