Lawmakers concerned as healthcare overhaul foes resort to violence

Washington Post, March 25, 2010

The healthcare overhaul debate has unleashed a rash of vandalism and attacks directed at politicians, with at least 10 House Democrats reporting death threats or incidents of harassment or vandalism at their district offices over the past week. The vandalism began last weekend, when the House debated the health bill for final passage. In Wichita, KS, someone broke the window of a county Democratic Party headquarters with a brick that had "No to Obama" and "No ObamyCare" written on it, the Washington Post reports.
