It looks like the vocal opposition of Obamacare is making a dent in the President's carefully laid plans. The biggest problem with Obama is that he thinks the Presidency is rather like a dictatorship in that he can simply list off his personal agenda and push though laws to further that end. He would like to make us into a socialist country, and fast! Unfortunately for him, the American System includes checks and balances. This system includes Congress, who are elected officials by the people, to represent the people. When they stop doing that people get upset, thus the increased attendance at the town halls. It does seem rather important that the people that are being represented be able to tell their representative their opinion on the matter. Otherwise, it's just a Congressperson representing themselves and not their consitutants. This is not a great way to go about being reelected.
