In Boca Raton Wednesday, tea party favorite Rep. Alan West (R-FL) told a crowd of angry constituents that the country would be ruined if something wasn't done to radically change Medicare.


"If you support Medicare the way it is now, then kiss the United States of America goodbye," he said.

Several people who tried to express their displeasure with the congressman were forced to to leave the event.

"I think they're a bunch of jerks," Anne Dion told WPBF after police escorted her from the building. "That's what I think about being forced to leave."

Liberal radio host Nicole Sandler was arrested at a West town hall Tuesday.
