Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi visits Denver Clinic to push Healthcare Reform,
Ignores Protesters

A supporter of health care reform, left, who did not want to give her name, pushes forward to rip a sign out of Kris McLay's hands outside the Stout Street Clinic visited by Nancy Pelosi.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi visited a Denver Clinic on Thursday to push for Obama's health care plan at an event that was only for the Pelosi Friendly Press and a few supporters of ObamaCare that were selected from the crowd (see video below).

Here is a video of outside the clinic, in which the shooter has placed helpful annotations in the video...

And here is a video of the event from the inside, made by an ObamaCare supporter...

Here is a snippet from the Denver Post:

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, visiting a Denver clinic for the homeless Thursday, insisted that Democrats are united in backing health care reform and brushed off a question of whether raucous, conservative-led protests against reform have hurt the effort.

"This is called the legislative process," she said during a brief question-and-answer period after touring the Stout Street Clinic in downtown Denver. "There are differences of opinions. This is the democratic process. . . . This is a very big initiative, to change health care in America."

Pelosi's visit to the clinic — to see and tout the impact of stimulus funds — came at a time when the national debate over health care has escalated into a figurative shouting match.

The shouting match became a literal reality outside the clinic Thursday, as people skeptical of more government involvement in health care traded chants and slogans with others who support sweeping reforms.

The Democrats will try to do a bum's rush on us to get this monstrosity passed through and our rights further curtailed by big government, as well as another blow to what little of the Free Market we have left in America.

During the next few weeks, please take the time to contact your Congressman and your Senator. Let them know how you feel about HR 3200 and be polite when you do it. Also, contact the local Democrat party headquarters and let them know that you are opposed to the bill. Let them hear how many people are opposed to socialized medicine.

If there is a Town Hall in your area, please attend and let your voice be heard in a respectful manner. Take a camera or camcorder and record what goes on so that Lefties cannot succeed in the oft-repeated lies that we are the ones who instigate violence at these things.

If your Congressman or Senator is a coward, they will be holding Town Halls via telephone so that they can avoid public contact with constituents who oppose ObamaCare.

My Congressman, Heath Shuler, will be holding a Tele-Town Hall on August 13th at 7.10pm and Sept 1st at 7.00pm. Please call 202-225-6401 and they will ask for your name, email address and Zip Code. If you are from outside the District, give them one of the following Zip Codes: 28801 28806 28813 28723 28751 or 28779. These are all Zip Codes in his Congressional District.

If there is no answer at Shuler's DC office, try the numbers on this web page...
