Rachel Maddow has done an excellent job of digging into the depths of the so called "grass roots" protests around the Town Halls for Health Care Reform. I think it is important to remember that Rep. John Boehner, (R, OH) said it would be a "hot August" for the Democrats, and by that I think he was saying it as a threat.
This is just one of the segments of Rachel's show she has done on this, there are many more. She has really done a great job of exposing the behind the scenes companies, businesses and money involved in fighting Health Care Reform. You can check out Rachel's show and see other video's and links to wonderful things by going here.
I think it is so important to remember that for people like her who has insurance, and probably very good insurance, this is not something she is worried too much about. However, she and others are concerned about the fairness of the debate. She is a political junkie. That's why she gets into this stuff...lol
Look at this video, see what she has found and think about this, then check with your representative or your senator and see if they have a meeting scheduled in your area. If they do, plan to attend and be prepared to face the worst. But, also, plan to show your support for Health Care Reform. Help Pres. Obama and the Democrats get this done. It will happen this year. That is one thing I am sure of.
