Boxer Belittles Again

By Kelli Krauss

Barbara Boxer, a.k.a. “Ma’am", does not like what is happening all over the country at these town-hall meetings. According to Senator Boxer, who was interviewed by Chris Matthews, these “well-dressed” Americans who are concerned about the fast pass of a health care reform bill that will spend endless amounts of money and produce a government run fiasco, don’t really know anything. They are asking questions just to be difficult, obstructive, and because they just don’t like Obama. So we all have to dress badly for Boxer to take us seriously?

Her statements make clear that she thinks we don’t have the brains to process the garbage that comes out of Washington. We should accept hook, line and sinker what they want to pass and assume it is in the best interest of the American people. No debate, no questions, and if you do, it is because you don’t like Obama, as Boxer very clearly stated, “So all of this is a diversion by the people who want to, frankly, hurt President Obama.” She and many others in Congress seem to be perfectly fine with insulting the American people. With Al Franken, a.k.a. Stuart Smalley, now a Senator from Minnesota, they must be having daily affirmation meetings and reciting, “I'm going to do a terrific show today! And I'm gonna help people! Because I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and, doggonit, people like me!”

The American people have a right to express their opinion about the direction of the country especially to those in Congress directly representing them. It is funny how Barbara Boxer has no problem with Code Pink and their tactics of protest or many other radical groups who do actually organize and rally to protest, but is offended by an ordinary American voicing their opinion about the direction of health care and spending in this country. To her we are just ridiculous people who dress nicely and have gathered to make the President look bad. It is such a juvenile way to look at an opposing view and just shows how little she and many in Congress know about the mind of the American people, how little they think of the American people and how scared they are about what is rallying the American people.

I am glad that Barbara Boxer, a.k.a. “Ma’am”, is getting in front of the cameras along with her comrades in Congress because it continues to show how they snub the American people, especially those who pay attention, think and think differently. They are igniting a flame in more and more Americans who are fed up and finally standing up to be heard.
