    In 2009 the repubs, tried to bring down Obamacare by turning Townhalls in shouting matches.  I made lapel stickers on my home printer that simply said:

    UNINSURABLE - Please support Obamacare

    I made 40 of them and anytime someone started telling a similar story, I gave them one.  Pretty soon, the room was full of uninsurables.  Normal, everyday, sympathetic-looking uninsured people.

    It was much harder then for the rowdies to look us in the face and tell us we didn't deserve healthcare.  

    Put a human face on it.

      brilliant idea - thank you so much
