The protesters and their signs were there to bring to Boccieri’s attention as well as the public’s attention our grave concern for his yes vote for the Waxman-Markey Cap and Trade (Tax) Bill as well as his planned vote for ObamaCare, H.R. 3200, America's Affordable Health Care Act of 2009.
As I passed a group of gentlemen along the side of the road I heard one mention “local rightwingers” in describing the group of folks on the opposite side of the street from the dedication ceremonies for the new Barbasol plant. The protesters were very respectful and were very happy that a new American plant was coming to the area. They were not so happy about what Boccieri is doing and about to do in Congress . . . Unlike the two state representatives and the state senator, Boccieri did not approach the protesters, like many Democrat politicians they would rather not face the unpleasant music.
