Well first of all they were invited to the town halls, secondly the reason for the town hall meetings was to answer questions. The ones that didn't end up in shouting matches (the majority of them) never answered a single question addressed to them instead they danced around like a chicken with it's head cut off.
When they become so ignorant that they tell the town hall people, "Well my constituents said..." they just need to be voted out. After all these people are their constituents not the campaign contributors whom they were obviously referring to.
Doesn't really matter at this point as half of them will pry not have a job in the next couple years anyway.
Chances are they guy was threatened by some loony local person as any govt. official right now wouldn't be so stupid as to commit career suicide that way but then again I could be wrong considering these representatives don't even know what's in the bill and obviously haven't read it.
I wonder what their trying to slide under our noses while we're all focused on this latest distraction
...... at worse it will lead to population control and euthanasia.

It really is time for Democrats to be honest with themselves.
(1) The House and Senate both have Democratic Majorities.
(2) The President is a Democrat.
(3) The President said he wanted a Health Care Bill passed before August.
(a) There is no Health Care Bill but THREE (3) different House versions and TWO (2) different Senate Versions, all FIVE (5) in Five (5) different committees.
Now since there are:
(b) Not enough Republican Votes to keep a Health Care Bill ANY Health Care Bill from passing if ALL THE DEMOCRATS are in favor of it GUESS WHAT?
IT SURE CAN'T BE THE REPUBLICANS HOLDING THE THING UP!
You know it's funny but since i've read some of the things about the healthcare for seniors Soylent Green has been on my mind an awful lot.
But I thought there was a united liberal agenda controlled by TPTB in order to screw us out of our rights for money... or something. You mean the government actually sort of works the way it's supposed too?
