    Umm it was the will of the majority that elected the democrats in the first place.

    Thing is you cons can’t figure out you are the MINORITY!

    Town hall protesters = vocal minority

  3. carter_lansford

    The raving lunatics at town hall meeting do not represent the rest of us.

  4. OGRE!!!

    the people don’t know what they want. that’s pretty much a free pass for elected officials to go nuts.

    Democrats are showing their true colors…so to speak. Liberals are the new Luddites.

    They aren’t ignoring the will of the people. They could fast-track this thing and do whatever they wanted. What they attempted to do, since 70% of America is pissed over this socialized bill, is lie about what is in the bill to get support for it. They can do what they want to, but they are terrified of committing party suicide for next election.

    The proof is in the outcome. And conservatives and Independents are gonna tell the liberals when the crap hits the fan: “Told ya”.

    What are you talking about?

    because they have Unions money to brainwash the voters.

    obviously, you don’t know the meaning of a majority.

  10. zaphod73@att.net

    Uhm..they’re not, they’re simply ignoring the voice of the MINORTY PARTY that LOST the election and whose ideologies have already been proven to be failures…and rightly SO!

    Unfortunately for One Term Barry a huge number of Democrat reps are starting to listen to the people they represent. They cannot dodge them

    That is why Barry pushed to get it passed before the summer recess, when they go home to their district to face the voters.

    Obamacare is a train wreck and Barry already a failed president.

    Because they rule the people. You do what they tell you. You have no choice in communism and thats what this is when they dont care about the will of the people.

  13. slykitty62

    Hey Sparky, it isn’t socialized medicine that the bill is about. I guess that is why he is ignoring the angry mobs screaming nonsense.

  14. Cinner

    Because they follow Obama, not their constituents wishes!!!! Hey Dems, a MAJORITY of the American people don’t want your version (any of them) of health care reform! Get a clue!!!!

  15. Silence

    And they are mostly old white people, I don’t think that speaks of the will of the people. An election that would speak for the will of the people. Few hundred people in a town-hall yelling is not really a scientific sample.

    They are not ignoring they are listening the Millions of us who want health care reform, it is called the majority deary.

  17. Shovel Ready

    Ignoring people is what Democrat politicians excel at. They believe in their hearts that people are too stupid to make any decisions for themselves or have any control over their lives.

    I see no reason to pay any attention to the ‘moos’ of spooked herd animals any more than the ‘moos’ of regular herd animals Why do you?

    One of those spooked herd animals that mentioned that the ‘sleeping giant’ was awakened in her had no opinion whatsoever on the medicare program of which she probably had relatives on. Some giant.

  19. smsmith500

    They don’t consider the majority of Americans smart enough to make decisions concerning how we live

  20. wrfine

    Yeah the people (Blacks) put him there and the wiggers so now you wiggers are crying. It is a different culture. We respect what we have where as they don’t care they just thrash and run……31/2 more yrs of this chit!

  21. DebbieP

    Uh, obviously they are not overwhelmingly against healthcare reform. You are seeing it from your own slanted view.

  22. robot_hooker5

    Because progressive liberals and other left-wingers always feel that they know what is best for the poor, unwashed masses they lie about caring for. In truth, all they want is power, just like every other fascist in history.

  23. Peace through blinding force

    Democrat politicians often engage in blatant displays of contempt for Americans.
    To the degree they have ANY concern for polls, it’s to preserve their jobs or guide them on matters upon which they’re undecided by doing the opposite of what “the people” want.

  24. Seldon Surak III

    As an intellectual liberal, you need to understand that we are smarter than any of you. The constitution is meaningless, old and outdated. We haven’t been concerned with that rag in decades. It’s full of negative rights and it’s fundamentally flawed, as our great leader proclaimed.

    We know what is best for you. I want socialized medicine, therefore, you must have it too. You’re too dumb to think for yourselves. You need us.

  25. open4one

    I’m really not as concerned about them ignoring the will of the People as I am them ignoring the limitations of the Constitution.

    The fact is, I don’t KNOW whether the majority of the People are for this or against it. I hear loud voices on both sides. I can’t go coast to coast and count heads, and I don’t necessarily trust polls.

    What I DO know is that what they are doing is unConstitutional. The fact that they are blatantly ignoring that and very few people are pointing this out does cause me concern.

    It is the fault of the people. The masses have so failed to exercise their most basic of freedoms. VOTE Therefore, we allow a small minority of our population to send the representatives to our legislative bodies. We have been so engrossed in our “pursuit of happiness” that we failed to see the forest for the trees. Consequently, we have replaced representatives with rulers. Once they became rulers, I offer Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reed, Charles Rangel, Barney Frank, Arlan Specter. Robert Byrd as prime examples of this hierarchy which we have allowed to be created. The only way to correct it and force the politicians to listen to the people is to remove the existing bunch and replace them with new. We need term limits to prevent this from happening. After all, congress put term limits on the office of the presidency. If it is good for the highest office in the land why would it not be good for congress?

    The people voted and guess what they voted for a democrat knowing that in his campaign he talked about a public option.So obviously the people at the town hall meetings are the minority and better yet most of them are probably on Medicare or Medicaid(both government run)

    it has nothing to do with socialized medicine……read the bill will you..

  28. Mel

    And according to a brand-new NBC News poll, 47% of Americans — a plurality — oppose the public plan, versus 43% who support it. That’s a shift from last month’s NBC/WSJ poll, when 46% said they backed it and 44% were opposed.

    The Marist Poll found 45% of registered voters nationwide disapprove of how Obama is handling health care, while 43% approve and 12% are unsure.

    Public support for the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats has fallen to a new low as just 42% of U.S. voters now favor the plan.

  29. how_would_I_know

    The town hall meetings really don’t mean much. However, poll after poll after poll shows the American people are OVERWHELMINGLY against socialized health care.

    Not only are they blatantly ignoring the will of the people, they’re ignoring that pesky old document: The Constitution.

    This entire debate misses the point. We keep hammering away on the unsustainability of socialism. We keep hammering away on the basic economics of the situation. We keep hammering away at the destruction of the private sector and individual freedom and liberty. We’re attacking this the wrong way.

    There exists no legal avenue for the government to legislate any form of health care. Previous unConstitutional legislation is irrelevant.

    P.S. See! Look at all of the responses claiming this isn’t socialism and professing pure, unadulterated ignorance of the Constitution. Willful, apathetic ignorance is the only true epidemic we face.

    Legislation does not need to read: “Socialized Medicine Bill” for it to be socialized medicine. It does not need to read: “Socialized Medicine Bill that Destroys the Private Sector” for it to destroy the private sector.

    I can easily create a situation where my home catches fire without lighting a match. Likewise, government is creating a situation where all that will exist is the public “option” and bankrupt the private sector.

    Legislation that mandates what private insurers must insurer, and creating a climate where it is more attractive for employers to take the payroll penalty is precisely the same result as simply outlawing the private industry.

    You simply must begin to think for yourselves and see beyond the sound bites and press releases.

    The town hall meetings are not even about socialized medicine. Just because a bunch of birthers and tea baggers were bussed in by the insurance companies to yell, disrupt and deny freedom of speech to anybody with a rational point, doesn’t mean that any majority is in favor of these outside agitators. Polls show that a majority of Americans favor health care reform. Since socialized medicine is not even on the table, your point is moot.

    They have always ignored the direction of their constituents.

    Not much chance they will start now.

    1. they have total control of the Executive Branch of the Government with no check and balances
    2. they have total control of the Legislative Branch if the Federal Government with no check and balances
    3 . with the appointing Sotomayor to Supreme Cort now they just about have total control of the Judaical Branch if the Federal Government
    after Hussein Obama was sworn into Office he said I won the Election , I can do what I want and Nancy Pelosi said we won the Election and we can do what we want , Despite the wishes of the people that put them in Office the Democrats are doing what ‘ THEY WANT ‘
