A man got physical with Republican North Dakota Rep. Kevin Cramer at a town hall meeting Thursday before being escorted out by police.
The man was yelling at Rep. Cramer, “Will the rich benefit from, if the health care is destroyed, do the rich get a tax break? Yes or no?” He then shoved cash into the congressman’s collar, saying, “There you go, take it.”
Cramer responded, “That’s too far,” and police escorted the man from the meeting. Another man was escorted out after he stepped in and blocked the man yelling as he was angrily approaching the congressman.
CNN anchor Poppy Harlow described the scene as, “This man showing his disgust with the Congressman’s support of tax cuts for the wealthy, one part of the GOP plan right now.”
This is the latest in an escalating series of town hall meetings with Republican congressmen across the country that have seen liberal activists scaring citizens and shouting down elected officials over proposed changes to Democrats’ struggling health care law.
