Sen. Arlen Specter says critics of the Democrats' health care proposals are not representative of the public's view on the issue.
The Pennsylvania Democrat has faced tough town hall audiences in his home state. And, according to him, people who are angry at town hall meetings don't reflect the broader public opinion of the proposed overhaul.
During his appearance Sunday on ABC's "This Week," "Snarlin' Arlen" found himself on the defensive with Utah GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch, who says the crowds are representative of people "up in arms" over the plan.
According to Hatch, the outrage is genuine.
Hatch also says the Democratic National Committee and organized labor are also sending supporters to town halls to challenge Republicans.
