I am truly horrified by the House Republicans, who shouted down and constantly objected to a group from the Democratic Women's Caucus, who were trying to make their points in favor of health insurance reform this morning. Among them was Rep. Lois Capps (D-CA), the sister of the wonderful neighbor who lived across the street from my parents for many years (and whose children Nadine and I babysat). Capps was not even able to get a sentence out of her mouth before being shouted down.
The presiding chair, John Dingell (D-MI), made pathetic attempts to subdue the unruly Republicans, but they paid him no heed. And these are the people elected to make laws and run our country? Vote them out!!! What happened to common decency and respect? Dead in the U.S. Congress.
