I just wanted to take a moment to update everyone on the town hall meeting we had last Monday night. In spite of some audio problems and a few, sporadic technical glitches, the meeting was a huge success; approximately 150 viewers logged on to watch Rep. Davy Carter, Sylvester Smith, Dr. Eugene Smith, and me discuss proper health care reform. We hope you’ll join us next time we have an event like this–which we hope to do very soon.
One of the primary reasons we held the town hall meeting was that we felt there’s a vacuum of good information pertaining to health care reform. A lot of groups are quick to point out what they don’t want Congress to do, but not very many are offering good, alternative suggestions. That’s why–at the request of Senator Lincoln’s staff–we assembled a list of Health Care Reform Dos and Don’ts. It’s a simple list based on independent research conducted by our office and several Arkansas doctors.
