Info about Jim Morans Town hall

Here is the scoop as I know it.

Seating is limited, and as of now the doors open at 6 PM. ( you know they're going to stack the place full of Obamacare supporters.. watch all entrances and exits... at one town hall they Obamacare supporters in a side door and left other citizens waiting out front and never opened the doors.

Be there VERY early if you want to get in.

Even if you don't get in, you can still let your voice be heard outside. So Bring signs!

Be Prepared! You may get in!

Here are some questions to ask
( from an article Senator Tom Coburn wrote for National Review )

1. Why do we need to increase spending on health care by at least $1.6 trillion and steal prosperity from our children and grandchildren when we spend nearly twice per person what other industrialized nations spend on health care?

2. What programs will you cut and whose taxes will you raise to pay for health-care reform?

3. What earmarks or pet projects that you have sponsored will you sacrifice to help finance the cost of health-care reform?

4. Will you vote for a public option that requires taxpayer-funded abortion?

6. Will you vote for a plan that will allow a board of politicians and bureaucrats to override decisions made by you and your doctor?

7. If you support a “comparative effectiveness” board, what qualifies you, as a politician, to practice medicine? Have you delivered health care to a single person, much less entire classes of people you claim to represent, such as the poor, the uninsured, or children?

8. How will a government-run public option perform better than other failing government programs, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Indian Health Care?

9. If increasing spending on health care was the solution, why hasn’t it worked yet?

10. Are you more committed to doing reform right or quickly? Would you consider backing a thoughtful alternative to the public option? If so, which one?

Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the town hall. I would love it if you would send me info, pictures and links to youtube videos so I can post them here!

here is the link to Jim Morans website.

I will post more info as I get it.
