Town hall meetings, fishy emails and You Tube videos

The health care debate is turning rancorous according to a Reuters report (via Medscape):

Democrats will make their case to the public with stories of patients bankrupted by costs that insurers would not cover, hundreds lining up for charity, and people in need forced to delay life-saving treatments.

Republicans and others will try to stop Obama from achieving his No. 1 domestic goal with a counter-argument: Why should Americans think that any plan conceived in Washington will in any way improve the medical attention they get now?

Outspoken in their support of free enterprise, Republicans accuse the Democrats of trying to "socialize" medicine -- anathema to the many Americans who oppose government intervention in their lives.

This will be an interesting couple of months. Prepare to witness the power of alternative media like never before.
