Health care town hall: Let your voice be heard
For years now, we have heard repeatedly from Congress that Obamacare must be repealed, that it’s not sustainable, that it’s restricting the doctor-patient relationship and that the law must be changed. Yet, they’ve done nothing to provide relief to their constituents.
Not long after Obamacare became law, Republicans said, “Just give us the Senate and we’ll be able to make some progress on changing the law.” We complied.
Then, they said, “Just give us the House and we might be able to get it done.” We complied.
When President Barack Obama left office, they asked for a Republican president. We elected Donald Trump.
We, the voters, have lived up to our end of the deal. It’s a shame that these establishment Republicans are not living up to their end of the deal. We are done with accepting failure.
It’s been nearly a year now and Congress has not reformed health care. In fact, they haven’t accomplished much of anything, despite having a majority in Congress and a Republican in the White House.
Congress is desperately out of touch. If they would come back home, have town halls and meetings, they might understand the problems we’re experiencing with health care.
Now, more than ever, we need you to share your voice. Tell Congress how out-of-touch they are with the hardworking people who sent them to Washington. It’s because of their inaction that I’m ramping up my efforts to give people a voice on health care.
Congress wants to scoot this issue under the rug and quietly move on to something else. We elected these people with one goal in mind: to reform health care. Small businesses, physicians and patients all have too much at stake for Congress to sit idly while the health care system crumbles.
That’s why I’d like to invite you to a Healthcare Town Hall in Jackson from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. Oct. 30 at The Old Country Store. We’ll have a small panel of experts to help answer questions. We’ll have surveys available, a video booth to record testimonials and more. This is the beginning of a long-term goal to capture feedback from the public and send it to Congress.
Please join me Oct. 30 at The Old Country Store and let your voice be heard.
