A lot of people are afraid of what this bill will do to our health care system for various reasons. They're also afraid that this bill isn't representative of a Democratic society. Health care is a very personal subject and that means people are passionate about it. I agree with freedom of speech and think people have every right to criticize/debate about the bill and/or our Government. What bothers me is the violent reactions and the hate filled, oppressive and sometimes even racist/bigoted speech that has been associated with this issue. People have a right to be as hateful as they want in their speech, but I hope the majority of people won't condone that type of behavior.
