Think Progress has the story of a raucous town hall meeting chaired by Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who believes that health care reform is unconstitutional

LeRoy Schaffer, a St. Francis City Council member, dressed in a tuxedo and top hat for the occasion. Schaffer got visibly emotional asking Bachmann about the future of health care and the role of special interests in Washington.


“I’ll be danged if I am going to give up my Social Security because of socialism,” Schaffer said, before being booed by the crowd.
