Get the latest on what Congress is planning for health care reform at a special town hall meeting on Saturday, July 11, at 10:00 a.m. sponsored by the Livingston Democrats. Health care is a universal concern so we invite all members of the community to participate regardless of their political affiliation or lack thereof.
A representative of Sen. Debbie Stabenow will be present to discuss what type of public health care option she is prepared to support. Dr. James Mitchiner of Physicians for a National Health Program will talk about the reforms doctors would like to see. Robert Sisler, clinical social worker and President of UAW Retirees Local 6000 will address how health care reform will affect retirees as well as the need for coverage for mental illness. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions and make comments.
“Health care reform is almost certain to happen this year,” said Donna Anderson, one of the town hall’s organizers. “The big question is what will the reform be? We have an opportunity now to tell our legislators what kind of plan we want so we need to be informed about what’s available and possible.”
Coffee, bagels, and juice will be available at 9:30 a.m. before the meeting at 10 a.m. The Livingston County Democrats' headquarters is at 10321 E. Grand River, Suite 600, Brighton, located on the north side of Grand River, one-third mile east of U.S. 23.
