Oops! Protester Screams at Rep Allen West Over Issue They Agree On

(Breitbart.tv) - Matthew Cochrane, on the scene: "Funny thing is, as soon as West started talking about the bill a liberal immediately jumped up and began shouting at West accusing him of voting for a bill that would deny school children access to health care. Of course, West voted the opposite of how the activist thought he voted but she was so eager to yell and interrupt West she never waited for his explanation! She continued to yell at West for a good thirty seconds before another audience member finally explained to the protester that she was agreeing with West’s vote. The activist then quickly sat down and yelled out a half-sincere apology."
