Thank heavens and Alan Specter:
Many have come to meetings with copies of the legislation and have cited specific provisions in their arguments.
In State College, some people read lengthy statements before posing a question. One woman handed Specter a copy of the Constitution. A few questioners praised Specter for facing detractors before relaying their own criticism.
The most vocal of the more 400 attendees jeered Specter. The forum at times turned into a shouting and hissing match between supporters and critics.
”Traditionally people who come to town meetings have objections,” Specter said after the event. ”They may not be representative of America, but they are significant, and their views have to be taken into account.”
“Birthers,” on the other hand, are representative of the GOP.
