Pro-health care protest outside of Representative Jim Cooper's office in Nashville, Tennessee. Saturday, August 22, 2009. Hundreds of Nashvillians and Tennesseans from the 5th district protested in favor of health care reform. Cooper continues to dither and waver, promising to vote against the health care plan. Cooper blocked meaningful health care reform in 1994, and is blocking meaningful reform in 2009, even though his district voted for Obama +13% and is a 'deep blue' district (it also voted for Kerry in 2004). Cooper claims to be interested in slowing the process down, but in fact he is simply interested in blocking health care reform. Jim Cooper is a Blue Dog Democrat even though he represents a Yellow Dog Democrat district. Cooper is not holding town meetings during this August recess so he can avoid people like these protesters. Cooper deserves a credible challenger in the Democratic primary for his role in blocking health care.
