Outside of Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy’s (D-OH) district office yesterday were activists from both sides of the Health Care Reform Debate trying to sway Kilroy’s undecided vote into their favor.  Heated exchanges were frequent throughout the rally.  One man carrying a sign saying he has Parkinson’s Disease was accosted, mocked and accused of being a Communist. “If you’re looking for a handout you’re in the wrong end of town,” were the words hurled at him by one fired up protester.

After the rally, Kilroy thanked the crowed, but didn’t signal how she’ll vote.

“We appear to be reaching the end of a process over a bill that’s been the most debated of any bill in our nation’s history. Hearing the voices of my constituents, and not Washington insiders, is crucial to my decision making process,” she said.
