Rep. Doggett: If Health Care Supporters Don’t Speak Up, Insurance Companies Will Win

Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), whose health care town hall Saturday turned into a “mob scene” of shouting protesters, just summed up this whole thing. CNN anchor Rick Sanchez asked Doggett why, if public opinion polls are split down the middle, we’re only hearing from opponents.

I’ll tell you, unless more Americans who are suffering under the insurance companies get out there and express their opinion, write their letter to the editor, call these talk shows — if they don’t get their message out the insurance companies will win in September and we just cannot let that happen.

“Many of them came, but they were drowned out on Saturday,” he added.
