Tea Party Patriots: Little Rock, AR 8/5 Children’s Hospital – Mike Ross and Vic Snyder Townhall…

Party on Patriots. Gee they don’t look like a mob to me…this is a polite well informed concerned and involved electorate…IOW Congress Critters’ worst nightmare, HA!

Wait for this first clip to get to 1:30 when the crowd informs these 2 blue dogs about what Obama has said on tape many times about this leading to single payer…

A summary of the action via Breitbart:

…”I’ve said this several times but let me see if I can make it a little more clear,” Ross said. “I don’t represent Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi or President Obama or (House Finance Committee Chairman) Barney Frank. I represent the people of Arkansas and I’m not voting for any bill that forces any one plan on anyone, period.”

Many audience members cheered loudly when Ross said he wouldn’t back anything that would provide federal funding for abortions or pay for health insurance for illegal immigrants.

…Colleen Shoemaker of Bauxite apologized to the congressmen for being “out of line” and heckling them during the forum. She said the government was taking away Americans’ rights. “At this point in my life I have never seen my America turn into what it has turned into,” she said. “And I don’t think that representatives and senators are going to be able to (pass a plan that preserves personal freedom). I’m scared.”…

On Tonsilquiddick and government take over of private industry!

I’m an American citizen and you guys are undermining American exceptionalism and personal freedoms!

On Ezekiel Emanuel!! LOOK AT OUR BEAUTIFUL INFORMED PUBLIC!! The Complete Lives System explained to the Blue Dogs!! How awesome!

The most recent notice is summarized in Table 1, and the weekly DOL notice can be found at:
