Washington, Aug.10 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has said that while some aspects of the healthcare proposals forwarded by the Obama administration are disturbing, she urged reform opponents to not give the Democrats fodder by disrupting town hall meetings.

Palin's comments, posted on her Facebook page, come after weeks of raucous town halls in which conservatives have shouted down members of Congress, reports Politico.

"There are many disturbing details in the current bill that Washington is trying to rush through Congress, but we must stick to a discussion of the issues and not get sidetracked by tactics that can be accused of leading to intimidation or harassment," Palin wrote.

"Such tactics diminish our nation's civil discourse which we need now more than ever because the fine print in this outrageous health care proposal must be understood clearly and not get lost in conscientious voters' passion to want to make elected officials hear what we are saying."

"Let's not give the proponents of nationalized health care any reason to criticize us," she said. (ANI)
