Shame on the politicians in starting this public forum business. All they do is provide a relatively inexpensive podium for a few paid professional protesters to attack government-controlled medicine.
"Socialized" medicine is good enough for members of Congress, Medicare recipients, etc.
Mr. Big Pharm and Mr. Big HMO should call off their clever brainwashing machines and give the vast majority who favor it their health-care reform.
