Dan Webster Mocked By Constituents Angry At His Obamacare Comments

Rep. Dan Webster (R-Fla.) confronted some unruly crowd members who mocked his remarks on health care at a meeting Thursday.

During a gathering of constituents in Winter Haven, Fla., Webster began to respond to a question about his 40 votes to defund the Affordable Care Act. "I believe that Obamacare is bad for America ... and so does the president," Webster said.

But in a video of the event provided to Think Progress by advocacy group Health Care for America Now (HCAN) and its local Florida partner Organize Now, an audience member can be heard telling Webster to "stop lying."

"No, he does not!" says a voice. Another attendee can be heard yelling that Webster should "tell the truth."

At one point, the host of the event intervenes to plead for the audience to respect Webster.
