Yesterday morning I had the opportunity to attend a townhall meeting in Tillman's Corner (an unincorporated part of Mobile). Our congressman, Jo Bonner was speaking there. He's doing 19 of these meeting in our area this week. The main topic, as reported in the news, is this healthcare debate that's been going on across the country. The only problem I saw was the way he was answering the questions. He wasn't vague or evasive, but it almost seems like he wasn't as knowledgeable about the proposed healthcare bill. One person asked if abortions would be funded by taxpayer money as part of this bill. He stated that there is no mention of it, which makes you wonder if the government will add more things to it. It was amazing to see so many people there. There was standing room only. Congressman Bonner said the last time he held a townhall meeting at that area, there were only 17 people who attended. It was unreal seeing a large number of people who is angry at our government. I'm glad to see that people are beginning to wake up. I'm waiting for our local media to brand those angry at the government as "Rightwing Conspirators". I think if we had this many people concerned about the direction our nation was heading in, Barack Obama wouldn't be in office. McCain also wouldn't have been the Republican nominee. Congressman Bonner said that he will oppose the bill, which is good enough for me. Seeing & hearing him talk at the townhall meeting put things into perspective for me. I voted for him in the past elections, but didn't feel he was a "top-of-the-line" conservative, but I think I was wrong about him. I still don't view him as "top-of-the-line", but he's more conservative than I expected him to be. If someone comes along & challenges him who is more conservative, I'll vote for that person. Until then, I'll stick with Congressman Bonner.
