These town hall protests aren't about health care reform.

I made this point at FDL over the weekend, and I think it bears repeating. The Teabaggers aren't protesting health care at these town hall events, they're throwing a temper tantrum over SOCIALISM!

Listen to the "conservative Republican" woman immediately after the old nutter gets tossed.
I don't believe this is just about health care...this is about the systematic dismantling of this country. I don't want this country turning into Russia, turning into a socialized country.
This woman, presumably like the Teabagger who yelled at Lloyd Doggett, likely also opposes Social Security and Medicare. And Medicaid and welfare and public schools.

There is no rational debate to be had with people like this about the government's reform of health care.
