Great turnout for Congressman Tierney!

The Republican running for Congress in the 6th District tried to use the health care reform debate for his own political gain this afternoon by holding a rally outside Congressman Tierney's office in Peabody Square. The candidate, who said earlier this week that he was "inspired by all the Americans at the anti-healthcare rally in Portsmouth," planned the rally to take place during Congressman Tierney's vacation, while claiming Tierney is avoiding facing his constituents. On the contrary, Tierney held this forum in Lynn in June of this year, and plans to hold an open conference call about health care before heading back to Washington--one that can accommodate as many as 30,000 people.

There were many times more of Congressman Tierney's constituents on the sidewalks of Peabody Square today than there were "health care opponents." Tierney is an outstanding progressive and is a proponent of singe payer health care.

By the way, how can someone be against health care?
