Frank gets an earful from unhappy doctors on a plane

Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank got an earful from some unhappy doctors on a recent flight

The problem started soon after the ophthalmologists - two sisters on their way to a conference in Boston - boarded the Virgin flight. When they discovered that Frank was sitting nearby, the women loudly dissed the landmark health care bill as an "Obamanation."

Now, here we have two doctors whose livelihoods are being compromised, who are basically being made into serfs of the state, trying to have a dialogue about an important issue. But would the people's representative listen? No, he just called them "bitchy" and ignored them.

Frank, by the way, was returning from Los Angeles, where a minority grievance group had given him an award for supporting the "give mortgages to people who can't pay them back" policies that torpedoed the economy.
