Both Sides

If you've been watching the news, I'm sure you're aware of all the people disrupting town hall meetings organized by members of Congress explaining what exactly is in the Health Reform legislation at this point to their constituents. The disruptors make a lot of noise and will not allow the information to be disseminated to those that want to listen. Many times they are not even members of the constituency involved in the meeting. There are organizations all over the internet with information on how to disrupt these town halls for the sake of being disruptive and spreading fear. The same fear we've lived with for the last eight years under the Republican White House.


So listen to "the rest of the story..."

  1. Thank you, Lizzie for having the integrity to post this. I, for one, hate protesters who try to shout and drown out the information being provided. If they do not like it, go elsewhere. It is rude, disrespectful and more and sometimes frightening. Some of these people get bused in (probably paid for) to a community, create disharmony, disseminate falsehoods or half-truths, leave damage behind and never to be seen again and accountable for their actions.

    Now, I was duped into reading a knitting blog that changed into a daily assault on the Obama administration. So, the other day I went to her blog to see if she had anything positive to say about the two reporters released from North Korea....and there was nothing. Most of these people have tunnel vision and were such Bush supporters that it is borderline insane.

  2. Hi Lizzie, I can't see what all the fuss is about either. The opposition wants free market for healthcare. Look what the "free market" got us as far as banking, etc. is concerned. i have lived under 2 government health care systems, in Germany and while living in England. I even got service in England as a foreigner without asking or having to pay. My daughter has not had health insurance in a number of years and has just been diagnosed with diabetes. Guess who gets to pay? Keith Olbermann' commentary on health care the other evening was awesome. Renate

I really am glad you're commenting. Please make sure I can find you by insuring you leave an e-mail address. It's so frustrating to have someone ask a question and no way to answer them! Thanks!
