The stupid, it burns

Michelle Bachmann holds a town meeting. One concerned constituent speaks!

At times tempers flared at the forum, with constituents shouting at one another.

LeRoy Schaffer, a St. Francis city council member, dressed in a tuxedo and top hat for the occasion. Shaffer 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.


Source doesn't care about your black tie sensibilities.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune quoted more of Schaffer's words and it turns out he was defending Social Security. "I'm on Social Security and I've got Medicare," said Schaffer, 70, before entering the auditorium. "I have socialized medicine. I wouldn't give it up for anything in the world."
