Hazards of the health care debate

(CNN) – Call it the hazards of health care reform: Voice mail death threats, bullet holes through windows, suspicious envelopes filled with white powder.

Fourteen members of Congress, including two Republicans now, are claiming they've been targeted. Both parties are blaming each other for fanning the flames of health care hate. Our Susan Candiotti has the report.

    IT IS the republicans that I hold responsible for these non-american acts! They have stired the fires of politics because they didn't get their way and have done NOTHING to prevent or discourage it. With loosers like palin in their camp it doesn't surprise me at all!

    We need a definition of what a tea party member is to understand the actions 1. Reads at a 6th grade level, no NYT for these folks. 2 gets information from 3 sources only Fox , Glen Beck and Jobba the Rush.3 Because of 2 they are very angry people.4 Easily led will believe any lies due to collective lack or reasoning.5They prefer to intimidate rather than reason, and will yell before listening.6 They bring guns to political events(kinda childish) 7 They yell against their own self interest(obesity is a pre existing condition and a lot of them are, their seniors yelling against government run health care when they are on medicare) 8 They think Sarah Palin is very Bright.
    They are being used by the above mentioned people to attack Democrats and moderate Republicans. Palin saying just reload is an example of fomenting violence, Rush and Glen do it everyday. So what do you expect?

    Talk about a mixed message! "I'm not backing down, they don't call me Slaughter for nothing."
