More of the Same from Kennedy
Hiding behind his quaking fear of “violent rhetoric,” Congressman Patrick Kennedy staged a comfy tele-town hall meeting:
Most of the participants — each of whom had their questions screened ahead of time by Kennedy staffers — appeared sympathetic toward changes to the nation’s health-care system. …
Tiverton resident Teresa Rudd said she remained on the line for much of the hour to ask Kennedy about how the proposals now in play treat the abortion issue. She didn’t get the chance to ask.
“It didn’t seem like there was any opposition,” Rudd said afterward. “It seemed like one big commercial for health-care reform.”
However much outrage Kennedy may express on behalf of the powerless rabble, it’s clear by his actions that he doesn’t hold his constituents in very high regard.
