Huffington Post was the first to over this event, it was a Town Hall Meeting from NJ, that of Frank Pallone. ( Thans to Fran for finding video). It was a Meeting hat had more than 1500 people, and he had a hard time keeping order. See Video below) Horrible Example of a total lack of Humanity- heartbreaking...and really worrisome. In this Town Hall Meeting Where are the Grown Ups ? Why did NOT one person step in as this poor woman in a wheelchair bravely described her illness, her battle for care, the expense of her meds, as she shook with emotion, NOT one person stepped forward to comfort her, or tell the others to hush. NOT ONE ??? Are we as a Nation going to let the Bullies win ?
( If you read this link you can see in the Comments of this Article that we have a Serious Humanity Problem, neither the writer of the article or the Comments show any compassion for the poor woman....)
And the Repugs have been Allowing this to go on at meetings- saying not a word,sadly this meeting of Frank Pallone a Dem did not stand up for her either. Should Elected Reps of the People atleast Try to maintain Order and Civility, should they let people be bullied.
And then to top it off, President Obama, NOW is YOUR time to step Forward and LEAD on this issue.
NO ONE should ever be bullied for coming to a Public Meeting and trying to Dialogue about HEALTHCARE. NO ONE. 50 Million People Right NOW are being Bullied by a Handful of Repugs, Angry insane TV personalities, and Racists. And we are supposed to sit back and let ANY chance of Care, Real Healthcare being "Negotiated" or "Compromised" with THEM ???? WHY ????
SO PRESIDENT OBAMA WE ARE GOING TO LET TEABAGGERS DECIDE THE FATE OF THIS WOMAN AND 50 MILLION OTHERS.....PLEASE TELL ME WHY ?????

And here is another event at Florida. There was another incident in California. And to be honest, there was a smack at our Fudge Meeting too, a woman one row over was smacked in the face-at that rally the people did stand up for her, and demanded that the Hitter/Distrupter be removed. ( the Newspapers and TV stations did not report that though- or really what the HCR people said or wanted).
We Must Fight On, 50 Million are Counting on us. We must be the Lions Now, we Must roar so DC will listen....lives are at stake. Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. ~Margaret Mead
