ObamaCare's Reception in Texas

Posted by Dave Blount at August 3, 2009 8:55 PM

Here's what happened when Dem Congresscommie Lloyd Doggett dared to meet with his constituents regarding government seizure of the healthcare industry the other day:

The silent majority doesn't sound so silent anymore.

dumpdoggett reports from the scene:

Rep Doggett met with constituents outside a grocery store in south Austin regarding the health care bill. Apparently the event was mostly advertised in liberal leaning local publications. He did not bring a megaphone, so hearing what he had to say was difficult. When he started making the move to leave, the crowd erupted chanting "Just say no!" His worker got the car ready to shuttle him away but the crowd surrounded it and it took a while for him to get out of the parking lot. The whole time, the "Just say no!" chant continued. It probably won't matter — from his facial expression, body language, and what was heard to come out of his mouth, he's for the health care bill in its present form and has no openness to change on that.
Mr Doggett did not spend time to get to know the crowd. If he had spent time actually talking to those that were there with an open mind, he would have seen that there was a significant number of Democrats there that do not support the current health care bill.
Please note that I was not chanting. I did not arrive in a bus, and I was not paid to be there. Neither was anyone else that I spoke with. I simply showed up to see what the congressman had to say. His resolve to vote his 'conscience' even if it goes against the desires of his constituents is not at all what our representative government is about.

Showing these arrogant, power-drunk socialists the door in 2010 is exactly what our representative government is about.
