Thankfully, both local and national news have picked up this very important story: Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) is refusing to hold town hall meetings in which he might be able to explain why it is he supports the public option health care "reform".
A)Dick Durbin is a tool. B)Durbin was in on the ground floor of mocking these town hall protesters in July so that he could have a full month of bashing/undermining them before he headed home for the August recess. C)This is part of the White House's overall strategy to marginalize the majority of Americans who do not want the "public option".
Both President Obama and Madame Speaker Pelosi promised transparency on a scale never seen before when they took power. Nothing says openness like refusing to confront the people you "represent".
