Democratic House Rep. Panics When Faced With Truth Of Obamacare By Constituents

Via Big Government, we see (video below) Rep. Ciro Rodriquez (D-TX)lose his temper when one of his constituents corrects him about the Congressional Budget Office correcting their data on the costs of Obamacare.

The man literally loses it, on camera.

Mike Flynn makes a couple observations:

I want to make two points; Rep. Rodriguez is an elected official with a duty to represent his constituents in Congress, no matter their political persuasion, and, he volunteered and asked for this job. He wasn’t ordered into this position by some judge, as some kind of sentence. He wants this job. It is a bit stunning that, at the first sign of criticism, he loses his temper so quickly. A confident politician would have been able to field this question.

When called out on it, ought to have been able to field the questions in a manner that didn’t resort to threats and a violent outburst. That he couldn’t tells you all you need to know about the political landscape today.

My friends, there is only one word to describe what you see in this video: PANIC.

Seems to me that Rodriquez has forgotten who hired him, who he works for and who he owes answers to.

Come November, his constituents can remind him.

While Real Clear Politics lists Rodriquez's seat as "likely/lean Democrat" he is facing a tough reelection challenge from businessman Francisco "Quico" Canseco.

Canseco is targeting Ciro Rodriquez on his voting record where according to Washington Post's Votes Database, we see that Rodriquez not only voted for Obamacare but has voted with the Pelosi and the liberal majority 98.2 percent of the time.

Time to Fire Ciro and Pelosi!
