Lawrence O'Donnell filling in for Ed Schultz asks Kathleen Sebelius about the astroturf protests that she and other politicians have been met with at these town hall meetings. Sebelius noted the similarities with other town hall meetings nation wide and the goal of those doing the shouting being just to disrupt the meetings and stop any meaningful discourse on health care reform.

Every Congressman who is going to hold a town hall meeting this month might want to take note of this diary at Daily KOS, and how one Congressman, Rep. Pete Visclosky managed to stop his town hall to turn into a mob scene.
