… that people just don’t WANT your health care plan????
This is what Sen. Dick Durbin, unfortunately from my state of Illinois, had to say about the blowback at Democratic townhalls pumping the health care plans moving their way through Congress:
“These health insurance companies and people like them are trying to load these town hall meetings for visual impact on television.” (Quoted here.)
It also could be, Sen. Durbin, that there are a lot of people who don’t want what you’re trying to shove down our throats.
FOLLOW-UP: Here’s the video of Sen. Durbin offering his thoughts. Note his belief that people flooding the switchboards at the Capitol only “proves that the switchboards have limited capacity.”
Sen. Durbin is showing contempt for the American people by minimizing the expression of their heartfelt concerns, passing off their anger at townhall meetings as the result of being planted by insurance companies, passing off overhwhelming attempts to contact their representatives as technical glitches.
