Wittman Hosts Town Hall Meeting on Health Care Tonight at CNU

Congressman Rob Wittman on a conference call earlier this month with constituents, talking about health care reform.

Congressman Rob Wittman makes a stop in Newport News tonight to hear what First Congressional District constituents are thinking about Congress’ health care reform plans.

Wittman will hold a town meeting on health care reform at Christopher Newport University’s Ferguson Center for the Arts’ Music and Theatre Hall, 1 University Place, Newport News. The meeting will run from 6 to 8 p.m. Ample free parking is available at the Ferguson Center parking garage behind the venue.

The congressman will take questions from constituents on any topic, although the focus is the ongoing debate over health care reform.

Two weeks ago the congressman spoke to WYDaily’s Amber Lester, and said people in the district were in favor of health care reform but wary of the proposals before Congress.

An online poll on Wittman’s Web site asking “Do you support a government-run option in health care reform?” has narrowed in recent days. Two weeks ago 58 percent of respondents had answered “no”; Sunday night the gap was 52.9 percent against and 47.1 percent in favor, with just over 6600 respondents.

    If I could come tonight,(I don’t drive at night) I would like to hear how your medical care works, since you will be exempt when the rest of us have Canadacare.

    Please vote NO for the health care bill now in circulation. Start over again and do it right without all the sneaky legalese terms to confuse the ordinary person. Make it simple and fair to seniors as well as the “uninsured”. All of us who payed into Medicare and Social Security for 40 or 50 years should be grandfathered and have the Medicare as we know it now, not the new and underfunded Medicare and Social Security that Obama is trying to shove down our throats. Shame on us for electing him!

    Mr Wittman,

    I am glad to say that I have paid for your health care with my tax dollars, as well as your staff’s. Please let my family gave the same opportunity
