  •  Protesters Disrupt Doggett's Town Hall in Austin (2+ / 0-)

    TheAustin Statesman has a story about protesters disrupting Rep. Lloyd Doggett's Town Hall in South Austin Saturday. They shouted " Read the bill" and then followed him out and chanted " Just Say No". At least some of them seemed to have come from outside Austin. It's doubtful that real South Austin residents ( including two of my daughters)  oppose heathcare reformI saw a comment on the Statesman's blog in which a woman said that she had attended the Austin Town Hall, and later attended the one in her home town of Bastrop, which is about an hour's drive away. .

    Find out if your congress critter is having a Town Hall, and make plans to attend. The Freedom Works protesters will be there trying to give the impression that Americans oppose a government option.

    •  I swear I think this "read the bill" crap (0+ / 0-)

      must be a result of the bogus info I posted below.  I know dimwits will be sucking it up like vacuum cleaners...
      And since we're on this...is there "a" bill in final form?  I don't think so.
