After passing the Republican budget plan last week, members are facing unhappy constituents as they return to their districts during recess. According to a video posted on YouTube by the Pennsylvania Democratic Party, Freshman Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., stood silent while constituents shouted questions at him during a meeting on Wednesday. Barletta represents a district that gave Obama 57 percent of the vote in 2008 but has one of the highest percentages of senior citizens in the country. Constituents criticized him for his support of the Ryan plan in a recent town hall meeting. One constituent accused him of trying to “destroy Medicare.”
