House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., are decrying an “ugly campaign” by angry mobs who are disrupting town hall meetings to discuss health care reform.

The two top House Democrats penned an op-ed piece in USA Today [2] to promote the Health Care reform legislation that is now making its way through the Congress.
