Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

The Mood On Healthcare Is Ugly

Just watch this. It's precisely why they wanted to get something done before the recess started.

And this is Pennsylvania. Imagine what the mood is like for red-state congressmen.

P.S. I don't endorse the rudeness of the crowd, or enjoy it. Specter and Sebelius have the courtesy to come and try to have a townhall meeting with voters, the voters should show the same courtesy back. Being impolite is not constructive nor does it reflect well on the crowd.
