Democracy Trying to Work

(Douglas Rushkoff is a guest blogger. )

Fascinating video from C-Span of the Senate Hearings on healthcare reform. Senator Max Baucus tries to quell a stream of protesters. As Personal Democracy Forum's Micah Sifry, who alerted me to this video explains, "At about 1:45 Baucus is laughing, calling for the police, as a half-dozen peaceful and very articulate citizens speak out, one by one, demanding a seat at the table (where 15 witnesses wait to testify, not one representing the single-payer option)."
