Town Hall Meetings

I got an e-mail from FRC action linking to Panzramic's post of footage from a Philadelphia town hall meeting. From all the booing and conservative sounding questions I would have said this was somewhere in the central US not Philadelphia. Many of the questions are good. My favorite was this one from a legal immigrant.

Some of the other questions asked were(paraphrased): "Why can't you read everything you vote on?" (We have aides who read them.), "Why aren't government monopolies as bad as private ones?" (Health Exchange isn't a monopoly. It is. . . Something you can't hear because there is so much booing), "If Medicare and Medicaid are bankrupt, what makes you think you can do a better job with a whole health care system?" (Those broken systems don't cover 47 million people [exaggerated number by the way]. We want everyone to be in our [broken] system."

It is worth watching.
