Republicans leery of angry voters at town hall meetings should remember "you asked for the job" – and allow constituents – and even "professional protesters" to "yell themselves out," Gov. Chris Christie said Sunday.

In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," the New Jersey Republican said lawmakers have to take responsibility for listening to their constituents.

"Welcome to the real world of responsibility,” he said. "I said to some folks the other night, that for the first time, I hear members of the House not complaining when people don't know who they are.”

But GOP lawmakers have to go to work, he sad.

"You asked for the job, go do it," he said.

"The fact is, the heat is on the Republicans, it's on us," he added. ""We asked for authority to change the country. We now have two thirds of the statehouses of America, we have the House, we have the Senate and we have the White House."

"We understand that a lot of these protesters are professional protesters, people with an agenda. And you have to work through that, you got to stand up and let them yell themselves out."
