    "On what planet do you spend most of your time?" Frank retorted.

    Rep. Barney Frank, drawing jeers and cheers at a fiery town hall debate, fired back at critics of President Obama's health care reform plan and launched into a sharp-tongued tirade against a vocal detractor who compared the plan to "Nazi policy."

    "On what planet do you spend most of your time?" Frank retorted.

    "You stand there with a picture of the president defaced to look like Hitler and compare the effort to increase health care to the Nazis," Frank fumed. "Trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table. I have no interest in doing it"

    Frank fielded questions on topics from health care reform to federal bank bailouts and didn't back down from critics who opposed overhauling the health care system during a fiery town hall in Dartmouth, Mass., on Tuesday night that drew roughly 500 people and was among one of the most heated yet.
