{VIDEO} Town Hall Rage: 'We're Dying Out Here Because You Guys Are Being Nice Guys!'

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Well, not all members of Congress are using the full five-week vacation to play golf or sit on the beach. A small number are holding a town hall meeting, and some of them are getting an earful from a very disgruntled electorate. Voters are angry about everything from "Obama care" to Benghazi to the NSA. Griff Jenkins reports from a town hall meeting in Maryland.

GRIFF JENKINS, FOX CORRESPONDENT: If it's August, it's town hall season, and some brave members of Congress actually held them in 2013.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: When is this government going to come clean with the American people and tell us what this secret law says, how it's being secretly interpreted, how it's being secretly implemented, and what it means to every person in this room!

REP. ANDY HARRIS (R), MARYLAND: I am very, very worried about what the NSA is doing.
We're going to find out that the NSA was not complying with the law. I don't know about you, but I'm offended by the government knowing the record of every person, of having access to every person I call.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: ... now they have all these embassies closed, and they still don't know what's going to happen there!

HARRIS: You have not seen the end of Benghazi. You have definitely not seen the end of the IRS investigation. There's no question you're not seeing the end of that.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Innocent people, if you will, are getting slammed by partisan politics.
HARRIS: Let me ask you a question...

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: People are going to be losing (INAUDIBLE)

HARRIS: I think we heard some discontent with what's going on, with not taking care of the problems in this country. And I think you heard a lot of criticism of the president here tonight. You heard some criticism of Congress. You heard about the issues that people are worried about. People are frustrated. They're seeing an economy that's not recovering. They're seeing a president that is sitting on the sidelines, literally playing golf, literally fiddling while Rome is burning.

EUGENE CRAIG iii, MARYLAND RESIDENT: We do not feel that John Boehner effectively represents us. I mean, as the voice of the House of Representatives, I think John Boehner could do a much better job.

ED HUNTER, MARYLAND RESIDENT: I want Boehner up there defying this guy and saying, We're going to impeachment with you if you do not start obeying the laws!

HUNTER: Listen, we're dying out here because you guys are being nice guys! This is not a Boy Scout meeting!

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It's not! And you're acting like Boy Scouts! You've got to fight!
HUNTER: Because we're losing the country! I want to see more defiance!

We've seen this dozens of times, where Boehner will not -- will not fight or McConnell will not fight, where Paul Ryan and the debate with Joe Biden sit there and sat there and took it from him! And we're -- the American people are putting our hopes on these people to defend us, and we get nothing!
