Shout Keep your government hands off my Medicare!

Comment: I have now heard this story from several sources. This one is
from a Paul Krugman column "Like Your Private Health Care?":

Krugman wrote: "At a recent town hall meeting, a man stood up and told
Representative Bob Inglis to "keep your government hands off my Medicare."
The congressman, a Republican from South Carolina, tried to explain that
Medicare is already a government program -- but the voter, Mr. Inglis
said, "wasn't having any of it." It's a funny story -- but it illustrates
the extent to which health reform must climb a wall of misinformation."
