No headlocks, neck grabs, or hugs in this one, but he seems to get pretty steamed when he cites the CBO, and the constituent argues that the CBO is revising its assessment of the health-care bill. A folded newspaper gets slammed on a table, and I don’t suppose he was swatting a fly.

This November, the incumbent Democrat will face Republican Francisco Canseco. In mid-June, a GOP poll put Canseco within three.
