But a strategic part of this grass-roots offensive against Obamacare is taking place at town meetings where angry voters are telling Democrats to vote against it.

In central Texas, Rep. Lloyd Doggett faced a rowdy crowd in Austin chanting “Just say no.” At a Morrisville, Pa., restaurant, Rep. Patrick J. Murphy was met by “an impatient, frustrated crowd,” reports the Bucks County Courier Times. Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius ran into similar opposition at a weekend town meeting.

The American people, God bless ‘em, don’t like what they’ve heard about Mr. Obama’s plan. Forget about what Democrats hope to vote for after Labor Day. This plan may be effectively defeated in the wars of August by an angry electorate that wants the government to keep its hands off their health care decisions.
