A mixed chorus of boos and cheers greeted Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador at his town hall meeting in Meridian Wednesday night.

Before the meeting, many attendees said they were hoping for a calm event, but they got just the opposite. 

The crowd let Rep. Labrador have it on issues like the president's tax returns and the congressman's vote for a bill that gave communications companies access to private information.

The crowd used red and green cards to let Rep. Labrador know when they agreed with him, and when they did not.

Each time Labrador spoke up, it seemed the red flags were flying in force, but he also had plenty supporters in the crowd. 

The town hall lasted more than two hours.
