Congressman Patrick McHenry stomps on health care bill
In a great letter to the editor this week, Gary Lichter recounted his feelings at the actions of Congressman Patrick McHenry at a health care town hall in Morganton:
You stated that you respect the right to disagree and yet your presentation was totally disrespectful of the health-care bill. You dropped it to the floor as if it was a piece of garbage and then you stood on it. You were disrespectful of its basic attempt to fix one of this country’s major problems. How can you ask for respect when you do not give respect?
Well, I guess we can at least be happy he didn’t shout out anything embarassing during the President’s speech…
