Over applause, a number of audience members audibly groan. "Oh Jesus Crist, that's terrible," says one attendee. "That's not true," says another.
"For those of you who say it's not true, don't talk to me, talk to Britney," Olson responded.
"The insurance company turned her down, not the government," an audience member says. "The private insurance turned her down, not the government." Others shout back that if there was government-run insurance, she would have been turned away. As the meeting devolves into shouting back-and-forth, Olson just says, "I want to thank you all for coming."

More left wing, libnut propaganda. I swear, how desperate can you people get? Isn't it bad enough they're trying to use Kennedy's death to their advantage? This is pathetic.

Actually, Pete Olson is my Congressman and I attended one of his town hall meetings (not the one on the video) and what he is referring to is a document stating "Probability of receiving an intervention". Not that any of you are looking for 'the rest of the story', but here is the link to the page that was discussed. I believe the graph is on page 428 in the link.
And I agree with bexi, most people realize we need reform, but many don't seem to like the flavor of reform that government is offering.
