That's not the american way
If everybody is allowed to resort to violence when they feel things haven't been done peacefully, democratically or intelligently, then society breaks down. The alternative to the so-called "American" way is nicely showcased in Iraq, where people resort to violence to solve their disputes. It's called rule of law and democracy. If the people are really so upset about these healthcare reforms, they will vote in a government which will repeal the healthcare reforms.
I don't think that 153 was saying that violence is the American way. He probably meant that using special exemptions and bribes to pass a bill which less than half of the population supported is not especially democratic.
