We all remember the right wingers who showed up at town hall meetings to denounce Democrats who supported health care reform. Since then, liberals have been challenging Republicans, including Rep. Charlie Dent (PA), Rep. Daniel Webster (FL), Rep. Paul Ryan (WI), Sen. Leah Vukmir and Rep. James Sensenbrenner (WI) and a host of other GOP politicians. Recently, Rep. Chris Gibson of New York's 20th district was grilled by constituents over his opposition to raising taxes on the wealthy. Watch as they grow increasingly frustrated over Gibson's refusal to directly answer their questions:
Constituent: Why do you seem so closed-minded to raise the taxes on people that can pay more? ...If cutting taxes for corporations is going to grow the job climate, why over the last year, when all of the rest of us are suffering, have they increased their CEO pay an average of 23 percent? They're not paying for jobs, they're not interested in creating more jobs unless you guys make them.
Gibson: But, see, you're reinforcing my point, though, that that's why we need to do the corporate tax reform.
Constituent: No, they need to pay their way!
