Congressman Arcuri's Town Hall Meeting Tonight

It was a joke. Complete setup... hell, my wife, a democrat, received an email asking her to show up early and support the Congressman. The sign-in crew was handing out pro-reform propaganda, and sitting in front of pro-reform posters. Here's a little point of interest.. the Town Hall meeting was held in an auditorium seating perhaps 200 people, with an upper and lower deck, 100's were turned away. The first seating occurred early, in the lower deck, and it became really apparent that these were democratic "plants" , bussed in and seated first, while the upper deck of walk-ins were largely opposed to the Congressman's statements on healthcare "reform" . I absolutely witnessed a woman who was finally allowed to speak... she walked to the Congressman's minion holding the microphone, and THE MINUTE SHE STARTED MAKING HER CONSERVATIVE POINTS AGAINST A PUBLIC HEALTHCARE OPTION, Congressman Arcuri's legislative aide PULLED THE MICROPHONE!!! She hadn't maxed out her minutes ( 2 minutes), and was completely civil in her delivery. That's free speech? That's fair? And what about those hundreds of others who just wanted to hear and voice their opinions? I asked the legislative aide afterward why the woman's microphone was pulled. He was in denial. This cemented it for me. I am voting for anyone else, as is my wife.
