    If you were invited to a townhall meeting by your representative what question would you ask? About healthcare. Bulge

    Ask them to repeat their oath of office, then ask if they "ever" read the Constitution.

    Please post their response

    Ask him this. Since the government now runs Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, and all are going broke, why would you trust them with Universal Health Care?

    Also, people pay Medicare premiums for 50 years before they are allowed to use it. And the government still can't keep it's head above water. HMB

    Ask them where the new jobs are coming from. Ask them what they have done to help create permanent jobs. Remind them that the government doesn't create jobs, business creates jobs.

    Setterman, it is going to be focused on healthcare. I know where you are coming from and agree with you but I don't want to get escorted out. I am a Republican with a Democrat for my representation. Heck, they might not even let me and my wife in. I Emailed Glen Beck and asked him if he would like to join my wife and I. Bulge.

    Ask them where all the doctors are going to come from. If we're adding that many new people to the "free" system, the doctors will be buried by every little sniffle or headache. Specialist will have a 6 month waiting list. It's nearly 2 months now in our area for some cancer operations.

    How about this one?...

    "Could you please cite a specific example of a current, large, government-run program which exemplifies the managerial competence and financial accountability with which you intend to run healthcare."

    My questions (2) would be as follows; 1) how can we affect quality affordable health care with out spending billions and having excessive government control. 2) as my representative voting on my behalf what ever the outcome are you willing to have the same coverage and care that I will be getting and pay what ever it is I have to pay!
