Feingold gets town-hall fury over ObamaCare

posted at 3:12 pm on January 12, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Both Politico and local ABC affiliate WISN bury the lede a bit in their coverage of a town-hall meeting conducted by Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) in Milwaukee.  It’s understandable, as the controversy over racially-charged comments by Harry Reid are leading the political news these days.  More significant, though, is the fact that Democrats are still facing town-hall fury over ObamaCare — even presumably safe Democrats like Feingold.

WISN doesn’t mention that until the final three paragraphs of their report from his meeting with constituents:

Feingold was also on the hot seat Monday in front of hundreds of people in Waukesha County during a town hall listening session.

Many in the crowd lashed out at the senator over his vote on the health care reform bill.

The crowd got loud; people shouted and even made calls for Feingold to step down from the Senate.

Feingold has served in the Senate for 17 years, representing a state that has been purple-to-blue for most of that time.  John Kerry barely edged out George Bush in 2004, for instance, winning by only a few thousand votes.  By 2008, Barack Obama beat John McCain by over 400,000.  However, the state still has a mix between the university towns where liberals get votes and conservative-to-populist small towns and farming communities that have, until now, moderately supported Feingold.

The town hall meeting phenomenon has not dissipated at all.  Perhaps the media isn’t giving it quite as much coverage as before — and perhaps Democrats aren’t holding town-hall meetings because of the certainty of this kind of reception.  But that is bigger news than whether Harry Reid retains his position as Majority Leader, at least in terms of policy and governance.

For the record, though, Feingold refused to go on the record one way or the other about Reid:

Feingold said he hasn’t decided whether Reid should resign his leadership role yet. The Wisconsin senator characterized Reid’s comments as “unfortunate and racially insensitive.”

“I’m thinking about that and we’re going to be getting together as a caucus next week and the topic will come up. I have not decided whether these comments merit that or not. They’re very unfortunate. They should have never been said. So, I need to think about it,” Feingold said.

That’s hardly a vote of confidence in Reid.

Update: Feingold also got an earful last week (via HA reader ukay_skipper):

Feingold gets town-hall fury over ObamaCare

WashJeff on January 12, 2010 at 3:19 PM

I’m proud of those people. I grew up in Wisconsin, and if you’ll remember, it was Wisconsin (the Green Bay/Appleton area, I think) where McCain told the crowd they had nothing to fear from an Obama presidency. They knew then what much of the rest of the country is just waking up to.

For what it’s worth, I voted for McCain, but that is the moment when he lost me emotionally as a voter. He lied to those people.

portlandon on January 12, 2010 at 3:22 PM

The Dems believe that people will love this bill once it’s law.

I disagree. I think people are going to totally rebel. First of all, there’s no public option. That was the key to mandatory enrollment. Second, it’s “unprecedented” in that it taxes before benefits ensue.

That is way, way to big of a pill to swallow in the middle of a huge recession.

It’s a con game, and people know it.

We all have family members who need health insurance or need some relief from the private industry practices that have been running rampant. We’re not going to take too kindly to paying taxes while still watching our loved ones suffer.

That was politically THE most amateurism of the year.

It’s not about Obama. It’s about our Congressional “think” tank.

They completely missed the boat on this.

No. I live in Wisconsin, and Feingold cares not one iota for what I say to him.

Just shows you how good a job they did promoting this (I’m Not) Listening Session; if there was one in Milwaukee, I didn’t know about it. Or I would have gone.

And yes, Milwaukee is the second most liberal county/city in the state next to Dane County, where the city of Madison (85 square miles surrounded by reality).

It’s stunning how many “representatives” have been told by their constituents, quite clearly and forcefully, that they are against this health care bill and yet they go right back to DC and vote for it. And then they wonder why people are angry.

If I was a Republican member of Congress, I would be having town hall meetings just to get the public reaction to Obamacare back into the spotlight.

Show some respect for people who really do need some answers about healthcare.

Show an alternative approach.

THAT is a winner.

Sorry Ann, but you are mistaken. What we have now is better than any of the 14 versions of Obamacare the Democrats have offered. It is your side that needs to offer up something that is commonsense.

Now, slightly more Americans want their member of Congress to vote in favor of such legislation rather than against it, 49% vs. 46% — a first since October. More broadly, however, Americans remain closely divided on the issue, with neither position attracting majority support.

Waukesha is represented by Jim Sensenbrenner (hope I spelled that right). Oshkosh/Appleton area is probably the most conservative part of the state.

Actually, the last time Feingold ran the Repubs had a very good candidate named Michaels (Im fuzzy as I was at Ft. Benning getting ready to deploy to Iraq). He is a former Army ranger and a very successful ditch digger (meaning he owns his own construction company). Michaels should have won but his folks sucked at running a campaign.

Claimsratt on January 12, 2010 at 6:45 PM

As a recent Wisconsin escapee, I have never been happy with Mr. Feingold. But with the strong union presence in the state he seemed untouchable. Now he is sniffing the political roses and is realizing people are fed up with his antics as well as those of his Democratic peers. There is a strong political wind blowing and Mr. Feingold will do anything not to get swept away by it. Case in point is the hedging on Harry Reid. All I hear is crickets chirping. I am sincerely hoping that he is replaced by someone who actually listens to his constituency and acts accordingly rather than being a water-boy for the leftist adventure now playing in Washington.
