Supporters not quite flocking to healthcare roundtable

The enthusiasm of Rep. Chellie Pingree's (D-Maine) did not seem to match the picture she shared of a smattering of health reform supporters that showed up at a Maine healthcare roundtable.

Pingree tweeted Thursday:

Waiting for the Secretary, making their thoughts known. People are so ready for health care reform! http://yfrog.com/67f7vdj

But the picture showed only four people holding pro-healthcare signs on the side of the street outside a the rountable in Portland, Maine at which Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Pingree will appear.

The event is designed to discuss problems health insurers pose to women.

More healthcare backers may show up, and it might have been better for Pingree to wait to take the picture.
