But... The Founders... Also, Such As

Absolutely amazing. These are the kind of people making the loud noises at town hall meetings. People who would most likely benefit from health care reform, yet are scared out of their minds by disinformation and misinformation.

I have to say I feel sorry for people like Katy Abram, in a small business family who has a health insurance plan with a $5,000 deductible, with a sick son who needs surgery, and she doesn't realize that her family could probably get better a health insurance plan and be more financially sound with the passage of a public option.

But I have to say it also pisses me off after hearing this interview that this person is freaking out about something she self-admittedly knows nothing about. She was never interested in politics until now, she doesn't know what her family's yearly income is, she doesn't know that her parents will soon benefit from Medicare and Social Security, but doesn't like socialism and probably couldn't define it if asked. And yet she shows up to a town hall meeting to yell at a Senator with decades of experience when she doesn't even know what she's yelling about. Just another dittohead talking about the Founders and the Constitution.

Who's willing to take bets on whether she's ever read the Constitution?

But she's a loyal Fox News watcher, lol She was also on Hannity's show and was telling him all about it.. she used to be a Democrat and voted for Clinton and when she got her first job couldn't believe how much her taxes were after Daddy Bush's tax increases.. lol So her husband turned her into a Republican when they started dating. I have the video if you want to see it...pretty funny.

I don't know, Annette,it seems sad to me. From your summary, her decision making skills don't seem too sharp. [Can't see the posted video from my weak system, so I read the summaries.]
