Talking Healthcare Reform in the Texas Heat

img_2970Today between about 11:30 and 12:30, US Congressman Lloyd Doggett spoke and answered questions about healthcare reform. He had just finished a closed door talk at a local clinic. Senator John Cornyn, who was also at the closed door talk, ducked out, preferring not to talk to his constituents. Nice, Senator, nice. Rep. Doggett let various sides speak from the microphone. Doggett supports the Obama plan. The crowd was mixed, though most were in favor of the Obama plan or something more. Most were also in favor of a single-payer plan. I didn’t get to speak from the podium, but I did get to talk to Rep. Doggett for a minute afterwards expressing my support for the Wyden-Bennett bill.
