    What are your feelings about women and minorities? Is it only strong white males who can withstand the rigors of a shoutdown?

    You make me sick.

    So you are saying it's ok to state another's opinions for them without seeking any form of clarification from them, cutting them off from the conversation by trying to advance the conversation without giving them a chance to make their positions clear. Great, let's all move on.

    I don't know why you're all so shocked, unless you're just pissed that your own tactics are being used against you.

    You say these folks are an embarressment to humanity. What's next, are they going to be, "sub-human"? That would be a blast from the past.

    oh gosh.......hope he's got insurance.

    Because they were. Because the woman was simply telling her story. She was not always disabled. She became disabled and her health care expenses are such that she is about to lose her home and become destitute. That's what they were heckling, someone that was disabled and becoming absolutely destitute because of their medical bills. So its kind of relevant.

    Well here we go...I don't know if this woman is really disabled or not. I haven't seen any doctor's statements stating that she is. How do I know she's not just faking it to get some sympathy.

    Boy, this selective outrage thing sure is great.
    Again irrelevant to the actual topic. Once again which part of them shouting down people on their own side did you miss? They didn't just shout this woman down but others who were opposed to health reform because they thought them to be liberal. This isn't a pro-reform anti-reform position but rather people wanting to shout people down and shut down any discussion.

    As for the guy who said he was assaulted. For being supposedly kicked and punched in the head I'd say the guy sure heals up well he must be wolverine.

    What clarification is needed? Either you think someone is a piece of **** for heckling people in wheelchairs or you don't.

    No, completely relevant. Despite your need to duck and dismiss.

    Great. You think people in wheelchairs are weak and can't withstand the rigors of politics without being treated with kid gloves. Let's all move on.
