Specter: Health care protesters don’t represent America
Sen. Arlen Specter has faced angry protesters at his town hall meetings about health care. But Specter says that the protesters are not representative of most Americans. “I think we have to bear in mind, although those people have a right to be heard, they’re not really representative of America in my opinion. We have to be careful here not to let those town meetings dominate the scene and influence what we do on health policy,” Specter told ABC’s Jake Tapper.
