York County Republican Party Announces Town Hall Meeting On Health Care
The Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday, August 19th will be held at the Magnolia Room at Laurel Creek in Rock Hill and begins at 6:30 p.m. Under discussion is H.R. 3200, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, a bill proposed by President Obama and the Congressional Democrats. The meeting is free and open to the public.
Representative John Spratt was invited to attend to address constituent concerns and questions but declined due to recuperation from foot surgery. Also invited are: Norman Taylor, M.D., past president of the York County Medical Society, OB/GYN Department Chairman at Piedmont Medical Center and Chief of staff at PMC in 2004; Robert Lesslie, M.D., an Emergency and Preventive Medicine physician and winner of the Patient Choice Award in 2008; and F. Michael Vasovski, D.O., who practices in Aiken, SC as a solo practitioner and is one of the original founders of the Free Medical Clinic of Aiken as well as the Aiken County School District consulting physician.
Representing the insurance industry is A. Watts Huckabee, Sr. who has been a local independent insurance agent in Rock Hill since 1990 with the Carolinas Insurance & Investment Group. The agency specializes in group health insurance, life insurance, investments and Medicare supplement coverage.
The Heritage Foundation, a think tank located in Washington, D.C., is working with the York County Republican Party to send an expert on health care to participate in the Town Hall event.
“It is absolutely critical that the public understands what the government’s comprehensive reform of the medical health care delivery system will mean to them and their families. I think that it is obvious that many people’s concerns have not been addressed adequately by members of Congress and this forum will afford them an opportunity to speak out and ask questions and receive vital information,” stated Glenn McCall, Chairman of the York County Republican Party, event organizer.
