Obama Takes Heath Care Road Show to Ohio; Local Dem Rep Skips Town

Another Democrat flees the scene…
Ohio Dem Rep. John Boccieri skipped out on Barack Obama’s dog and pony health care rodeo today in Ohio.

But, the “Kill the Bill” protesters were out in force… Despite the rain…

The New York Times reported:

Representative John Boccieri, Democrat of Ohio, whose vote on major health care legislation could be crucial to the outcome, will not be attending President Obama’s health care rally on Monday in Strongsville, Ohio, not far from Mr. Boccieri’s own district, a spokeswoman said.

Mr. Boccieri is focusing instead on a major infrastructure announcement this morning at Akron-Canton Airport, where the chief of the Federal Aviation Administration, Randy Babbitt, delivered a $16.6 million check for a runway extension and improvement project.

Mr. Boccieri has said the runway project would create up to 60 jobs and lift the local economy.

Last week the liberal Carnahan siblings, Robin and Russ, skipped Obama’s fundraiser in St. Louis. They didn’t want to be seen with the Washington radical in public.

UPDATE: Lisa sent video from the Kill the Bill rally.
