Congressional Town Hall

Went to an event with Congressman Rick Larsen. He tried to keep the focus on Veteran's Services. But healthcare reform is on everyones minds. Some Vets seemed concerned that healthcare reform would take away from their special services. Expanding care always seems to frighten people--as if care is a limited commodity...
A couple of guys tried to turn it into a shouting match. But Congressman Larsen did a good job of disarming the anger.
I asked for Congress to repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell. And to push expanded healthcare coverage to everyone.
Democracy at work. Slow and sloppy...
