WATCH: Christie gets testy about Obamacare at town hall meeting

Maybe Chris Christie should just hold fewer town hall meetings. A week ago, the New Jersey governor was getting heckled at a town hall meeting. Today, he got into an extended and contentious exchange at another town hall meeting over Obamacare.

New Jersey Citizen Action’s Maura Collingsgru accused Christie of failing to facilitate Medicaid expansion and accused the governor’s administration of “silence” where Medicaid is concerned. That’s when he interrupted her.

“That’s not part of the silence you’ve been met with when I expanded the Medicaid program?” he asked. “When I expanded the Medicaid program, is that silence?”
