Bachmann Heckled At Health Care Town Hall (VIDEO)

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) held her first town hall of the August recess on Thursday night in Lake Elmo, and she faced a raucous crowd.

After a rambling introduction that turned into a joke about President Obama playing golf with Tiger Woods, the Republican congresswoman was interrupted by shouts of "Health care! Health care!"

Watch (via Dusty Trice):

Reports say the crowd was mostly friendly to Bachmann, but not entirely. "I would first like to thank you for turning a Reagan voter into a DFL activist," said one attendee.

Bachmann was not cowed by the opposition. After she told a story about women having to give birth in hospital hallways, an angry male constituent yelled, "That happens here." Bachmann retorted, "I've given birth here probably more times than you, sir."
