Representative Barney Frank held a town hall meeting on health care reform in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. He answered questions on a variety of aspects of health care reform proposals before Congress, saying that he felt a public insurance option was critical to the future of U.S. health care. He also confronted several boisterous members of the audience who shouted questions. 

The program includes a much publicized exchange in which Representative Frank told a questioner who characterized the reform proposals as “Nazi policy” that, “trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table.” close
