Rep. Sanford Bishop tries to filibuster town hall; crowd turns ugly

Rep. Sanford Bishop(D-GA) tried to filibuster his health care town hall by reading for 40 minutes. The crowd didn't appreciate that approach. They started yelling, "Town Hall Meeting, not a Town Hall Reading," and "quit wasting our time." Congressman Bishop threatens to have the sheriff remove one person. This is almost unbelievable.

He acts like he is doing his constituents a favor. I have to wonder when these people stopped realizing the are elected by the people...I hope we can still elect them by 2010 so they get a refresher course.

Our Congress men may not want to listen now, but our voices will be heard in 2010.
