ASSOCIATED PRESS: Ark. crowd mocks lawmakers over Obama health plan. “An unruly Little Rock crowd heckled and shouted at two Arkansas Democratic congressmen Wednesday, accusing them of supporting a government-backed health plan that would take away Americans’ personal choice and freedom. At one point, U.S. Rep. Mike Ross sat with his head in his hands while the crowd shouted. He and fellow Democratic Rep. Vic Snyder told audience members at a forum at Arkansas Children’s Hospital that they wouldn’t support a completely government-run, single-payer health insurance plan. . . . Lawmakers across the country are encountering growing public doubts about President Barack Obama’s push to remake the system for providing medical care, evident in polls that find confidence in Obama’s handling of the issue has fallen since January. Concerns are growing about government-run health plans, a growing federal deficit, and the impact on small businesses and end-of-life provisions.”
