I don’t think Rep. David Price, D-NC, expected this. Call it the post-Scott Brown Tea Party phenomenon. He’s clearly uncomfortable in the video, which is via Randy Dye’s blog.

The crowd was civil, but not subservient. They didn’t buy any of his glib professorial answers. Here’s what Betty Dye, who posted it on YouTube, had to say:

“Congressman Price meeting with citizens at Cultural Center in Holly Sprigs NC Jan 23, 2010. None of his supporters showed up, just us. 5 Policeman ended up being called in to observe event, once again Conservatives had a peaceful debate with a progressive liberal.
Could be an interesting election season.”

Transcribed from video:

David Price is asked about the Constitutional authority for health care deform. For those unable to view the video, here’s the gist of it…

Price: The Constitutional authority for health care deform is social security and medicare.

Crowd: Huh? Then what’s the Constitutional authority for social security and medicare?

Price: The Constitutional authority for social security and medicare is the precedent set by social security and medicare.

Crowd: ?!?!?!

Now is probably a good time to remind you that Frank Roche is challenging Price…
