Just like everyone else, I am appalled at the childish disruptive behavior of the few paid goons who are disrupting Congressional Town Halls across the country.

I just received my weekly newsletter from Congressman Sandy Levin (MI-12).  Even though Sandy is 78 years old this year, he is one of the most up-to-date and tech-savvy members of the House of Representatives.

Today's newsletter links to the Congressman's Health Care Online Town Hall page, on which anyone can see and hear the Congressman responding clearly and calmly to serious health care questions.

I think we should urge every other Democratic Member to do what Sandy has done.

There isn't much more to say, other than please visit Congressman Levin's Health Care page and see what can be done to get our message out.

If your Senator or Representative has a similar video, perhaps you can provide the link in comments to this diary and begin to send these links to all your email contacts.

Congressman Levin is a senior, and is obviously speaking TO and FOR seniors as well as all citizens.  His answers clearly deliver the message.

When I view Congressman Levin's Health Care Online Town Hall page, I can see how many of his constituents have submitted legitimate questions to him, and how many people have responded and ranked those questions.

So far from this page:

"115 people have submitted 88 questions and cast 2,245 votes...
but what do you think?
Please sign in to vote on questions and suggest your own."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
