A hospital spokeswoman says the top joint of the man's pinky was bitten off, including the entire fingernail. It was not reattached.
She says he had Medicare, a government-run insurance for the elderly.
O'Hanlon says the attacker fled but authorities have a good description.

Barack Obama came to the presidency in January with almost unprecedented bipartisan popularity and strong backing for plan to make health care accessible to all Americans. But opposition has grown because of conservative attacks leading to increasingly raucus protests in recent weeks.
WTF??? Are they seriously suggesting this man got his finger bitten off (by an ObamaCare supporter) is caused by the Conservative opposition? Okay blame Conservatives for the CRAZY CANNIBLE LIBERAL biting a mans finger off...that sounds reasonable!

here is another link that I posted yesterday. I swear, people are losing their minds about all of this. I hope the biter gets caught, this is unacceptable. Oh, and I also don't think the other guy was right by punching him (since he did punch him first), but biting someone's finger off? Really.
