Health care town hall anger rages on
White House begins to sweat the phrase and significance of "death panels." So do seniors.

"Watch the video ,These people are getting pissed !""Were on the cusp of a race war !"

Out on the health care firing line, senators and members of Congress continued to get battered by constituents angry over President Barack Obama’s reform plan Wednesday — with voters raising questions about everything from assisted suicide to coverage for illegal immigrants.

Lawmakers insisted over and over that the bills in Congress would cover neither — but their answers did nothing to tamp down the anger from Afton, Iowa, to Hagerstown, Md., to Rocky Mount, N.C.

In Iowa, a self-described “dumb southern Iowa redneck” told Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, “I see nowhere in the Constitution where health care is a right. ... I want to hear it from Obama, I want to hear it from Pelosi, about how this is about ‘We the people.’“

In Maryland, a town hall by Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin quickly devolved into shouting after one questioner ordered Cardin to “cease and desist” from considering health care legislation. Cardin’s insistence that he was being fiscally responsible — “I’m not going to vote for any bill that adds to the national debt,” Cardin said — did nothing to quiet the crowd.

“That’s your answer?” one man shouted.

“You already did!” said another.

On the outside, opponents of the legislation outnumbered supporters by about a 10-1 ratio. “Obama energized the youth just like Hitler did,” said Barbara Kelly, a substance abuse counselor from Hagerstown. “He’s given the country away to the elitist Obama supporters. They don’t have to answer to anyone!”

People have had enough of the lies and propaganda. That opponents of this Soylent Green bill outnumber the 0bamabots by 10 to 1 would send a message to any real representative leadership but not to a socialist Marxist one.
................................
I'd like to see this August recess continue for another six months. This is fun!
.......................................
It's deceptive to call this the Obama plan. It was cobbled up by Congressional committees. Obama claims he has a plan but he has never tried to make it visible.
..........................................
How deep the anger runs? Are they looking at the polls? Stay tuned for election day and we'll show you how deep it runs!
........................
It goes beyond mere healthcare. We the People are fed-up with just about EVERYTHING. The healthcare boondoggle was merely the final straw.
...and we're getting even madder.
...................................
And yet, these fools and Marxist co-conspirators appear determined to ram through their stealth socialized medicine bill. If they do, they just might find that the tea parties will start turning into "end of life counseling" sessions for the perpetrators.
.............................................
Obama has a h/c plan yet he keeps it concealed, just like his college records, passport, and long-form b/c. And this administration is supposed to be transparent? Tell us another one, fabulists...oh, wait. You did. The myth that health care won't be a disaster.

Hurry 2010 elections.

I protested in the 60's and I was damn good at it.........I'm even better now.

These democrats don't know who they are screwing with. We didn't get where we are just "rolling over" for some socialist-marxist puke in a fancy suit with a teleprompter
It's time to stand up and stand out!

#1, good idea! Here in Texas, our legislature only meets in regular session in January of each odd-numbered year. The idea is to not give them critters much opportunity to chew a hole in our purse.
