Response to ecstatic (Reply #12)

15. We tried the townhall format already. The rich folks simply flooded the seats with their supporters.

The worst part is that I suspect many town hall meetings where you saw a bunch of protesters arguing against the health insurance reform law were paid to protest.

The left wishes it had a paychecks-to-protest apparatus like the right does.

Then right wing news outlets and radio stations picked up on this and made it out as if most Americans were against health insurance reform because they were all stacked with Tea Partiers.
