Recess Not Fun For Pro-Affordable Health Insurance Reform Democrats

Both houses of Congress are currently taking a recess. After months of frenetic work on affordable health insurance reform, it’s understandable that they would like some rest. Some congresspersons, however, are finding that their constituents are refusing to let them rest.

Here’s the situation: Democrats who voted for the healthcare reform bill are being confronted by angry constituents against it. Although they are receiving support, they are also attracting protesters. Republicans are mostly being hailed and encouraged to attempt repeal in Congress, but some voters are lukewarm. It shows how the issue of health insurance has largely cut across party lines, especially for those Democrats who opposed the bill.

Since many senators and all representatives are up for re-election this fall, this vacation back to their home districts is critical. The developments will be interesting.
