Leave the Town Halls Alone!

Apparently, conservative activists are attempting to disrupt town hall meetings being held by Democratic members of Congress to discuss the health care bills.

I can tell you from conversations I have had with members of Congress that these town hall meetings are VERY important to representatives and senators of both parties as a way to gauge the mood of their constituents. If activist groups disrupt them members will not know what they're voters really think and the time back home with constituents will be severely undercut.

These town hall meetings are grass roots democracy at work.

If the activists really believe in what they are saying they should have the confidence to let the people speak.
