Calif. Rep Says He Won't "Waste Urine" on Man's Leg

The indecorous town hall exchanges over health care did not end in August, it seems: Rep. Pete Stark (D-Calif.) was prompted to tell a senior citizen at a recent Fremont, Calif. meeting, "I wouldn't dignify you by peeing on your leg."

"It wouldn't be worth wasting the urine," he added, as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle and captured on YouTube.

The comment came after a man laid out his objections to President Obama's health care plan, saying that the president's claim he could pay for most of his plan through cutting waste from Medicare is "all smoke and mirrors." He capped off his question by telling the congressman, "Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining."
