If you haven’t yet read Bob Cesca’s piece about the hypocrisy of senior citizens railing against government health care, you should:

I don’t claim to know the full stories behind the variety of senior citizens who have been recruited to disrupt these town halls, but one thing is clear. They’re participating in a corporate lobbyist-driven campaign to prevent the rest of us from acquiring the same affordable, reliable public health care they enjoy. In other words, their government-run health care is excellent. So excellent that it can’t be shared. And they’re so intensely motivated in this selfishness that they’re volunteering their time to infiltrate town hall meetings and loudly ambush public officials at the request of lobbyists who are very simply lying to and exploiting them.
