5. Ask and ye shall recieve. My recap:
Edited on Tue Sep-01-09 09:30 PM by maddogesq
I give Gary Peters a lot of credit. It is my belief that those for some sort of reform outnumbered those that did not by a 3-1 margin, but the minority contained several rude, obnoxious, and frankly brain-dead, uninformed people who confused spirited debate with downright obnoxious (and in some cases racist, IMHO) remarks. You should understand that a lot of that crowd go from town hall meeting to town hall meeting just to disrupt thingsand in some cases they are paid to do so.

Being a supporter of single-payer (Canadian style such as in HR 676) I am not totally happy with HR 3200. However, some reform is better than nothing, and I will be the first in line for the public option if that is part of the bill. Oh, and I got into it with the pro-lifers and other folks with other right of center agendas while waiting in line out in front of the school. I told one woman that I am pro-life in that I believe in healthcare to prevent sickness and death, and no unnecessary wars that kill a lot of people. Healthcare, not warfare! Oh, and I got a lot of compiments as I think I was the only person wearing an "Aldo" shirt.
