They lie! Tea Party protesters exaggerated the size of their Washington march last weekend by passing around an old photo of a packed National Mall. This is grade-A stupid and just plays into the argument that these were astroturf protests to begin with.

And lets not forget all the people representing the sane, liberal perspective that were also present.

Good point Roseann. I think if we could get all these fools to sign pledges to give up all rights to Medicare, Medicaid, VA care, and Social Security, the Government would have a lot of money to cover the rest of us with a single-payer program!

I know a few people who are on Medicaid but complain about having to help others who have no Health Insurance or complain about Food Stamps but was on Food Stamps at one time, had to have their check ups done at a Clinic when they were pregnent because they had no Insurance, lived in Government subsidized housing at one time ( didn't earn enough money to live in any other kind ), was on Welfare but now has the loudest voice in protesting when it comes to helping the less fortunate. How quick we forget! A real Glenn Beck fan and totally against Pres. Obama and Health Reform, short term memory about the past and when these very things helped her/him they didn't complain. Is Medicaid, Medicare and free health clinics and subsidized housing not helped by Government & Taxpayers? Hypocrites alot of them!

Thank you, Tom. I saw this on TV but am happy to see you post this for everyone to see in case they missed it. I cannot believe what is happening to our country. Freedom of speech is one thing. Ugly and Lies are another.
