Rep Phil Hare, a Democrat of Illinois, in a Town Hall meeting about the recent passage of the Health Care bill
Citizen: What about the Constitution?
Hare: I don't care about the Constitution on this, to be honest with you
Citizen2: Jackpot, brother!
Hare: You know what I care about? I care more about the people that are dying every day that don't have health care.
Citizen2: You care more about that than the US Constitution that you swore to uphold??
Hare: I believe that it says that we have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Citizen3: That's the Declaration of Independence.
Hare: That doesn't matter to me. Either one.
Citizen 2: It clearly doesn't matter to you. It is so clear that it doesn't matter.
Hare: You don't know what matters to me. [voice rising] What was your question again?
Citizen3: Where in the Constitution does it give you the authority...
Hare: I don't know.
Citizen3: That's what I thought.
Hare: At the end of the day
