    if the makers of those calls were put up to it by the single payer opponents. It's hard for me to imagine single payer supporters doing this.

      A massive black op to make obnoxious phone calls and claim to be supporters.

      As in, provocateurs throwing the first rocks to start a riot.

      And people who aren't thinking about what's actually happening, getting their buttons pushed by it.

      Bingo.

      OK, so now what we need to do is ask friendly state legislators for a peek at their phone call logs, to try to figure out exactly what happened there.

      And if this was really a health insurance company black op, launching whatever lawsuits, PR, and protests are appropriate for it. Sit-ins in lobbies included, but always peaceful so as not to generate more bad PR for our side by playing into the enemy's hands.

      "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

        Agent provocateurs if you ask me.

        I got people to call and I called.  I  know a lot of Single Payer activists and not one will be abusive or angry when calling.  Just the opposite.

        Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.
