1. I'm conflicted about going...
this event is about 2 miles from my house, but talking to a bagger like Rigell is like talking to the wall. I doubt I'll be able to even get a word in without his goons ushering me out the door. I don't like wasting my time with used car idiots like Rigell. I've signed petitions for him to vote for bills that would help the working class and poor and all I get back is a form letter telling me how great his values and repuke voting record is.

3. went to the town hall...my first one....lots of people...some protestors
on the sidewalk going in...maybe 10...for here I guess thats a lot...Move-on passed out lit and a list of questions to ask....

4 doctors on stage with Rigell..he is new and has no clue so these guys held the town hall for him....the one from TN was folksy and easier to listen too....Gingry acted like it was his town hall....talked too much.

I left at 8:30 and they were still taking questions and some in the audience were getting loud because the docs did a lot of talking but didn't answer the questions....

only thing known for sure is they want to change medicare for those under 55...and made a point to discuss the Healthcare law 15 member panel, stating their salaries and the fact that they will not be doctors..they think its a good idea to be able to go across state lines for companies and want preventive health care.

Part of me wanted a shouting match and some confrontation...but it wasn't like that...maybe that happened after I left..the cops were bored...so was I!
