From the Health Care for America Now! rally in Washington

Reader Lou Meyers has an interesting take on the forum in DC:

Senator Hagan made an appearance at the NC HCAN town hall in DC. Glad to see her there! She was, however, in and out in a flash, offering little clarity of her position on the public plan. Those in attendance were left still bewildered about where she stands in support of her constituents, who put her in office, and her President, whose coattails she rode in on.

She should have come by earlier, or stuck around, to hear the horror stories from her supporters about how the private health insurance based system had cruelly decimated their lives when it should have been there to fulfill its duty of relieving their anguish and helping to make their families whole again.

As she whisked by the chants of “do the right thing,” I blurted to her on the way out, “why should we trust the insurance companies”. ——-If she’d been there to listen, she wouldn’t have then been the one to look so bewildered.

Rob’s right. C’mon Kay!
