Specter, Hatch debate town hall anger

WASHINGTON - August 16, 2009 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."
