Specter, Hatch debate town hall anger

Sen. Arlen Specter says critics of the Democrats' health care proposals are not representative of the public's view on the issue. The Pennsylvania Democrat says people who are angry at town hall meetings don't reflect the broader public opinion of the proposed overhaul. Specter has faced tough town hall audiences in his home state.

Utah GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch says the crowds are representative of people "up in arms" over the plan. He says the outrage is genuine.

Hatch also says the Democratic National Committee and organized labor are also sending supporters to town halls to challenge Republicans.

The senators appeared Sunday on ABC's "This Week."
