More health care protest footage, citizen debates on YouTube

YouTube remains a central hub of the health care debate as townhall events and protests about the issue continue across the country.

In the past few days, homemade signs at the townhalls have sparked quite a bit of controversy. One protester was thrown out of a Cleveland Heights, OH townhall and questioned by police for waving a poster that likened President Obama to Hitler. A scuffle also erupted at a Missouri event when someone ripped up a poster of Rosa Parks. This video of the event has received over 100,000 views:
