Town Hall Brings Drama, Fears On Health Care
More than 200 people filled every inch of a library conference room in Camarillo, standing in doorways and lined up four deep in the back. Some carried signs to a Tuesday night town hall meeting held by U.S Rep. Julia Brownley, D-Westlake Village. “Patients Over Politics,” said a placard at the back of a gathering that at times became a rally for an Affordable Care Act that Republicans have pledged to repeal. A few people wore pink cat hats. (Kisken, 2/21)
Town Hall On Health Care To Go Ahead With Or Without Issa
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista) may not attend a town hall meeting on health care in Vista on Tuesday, but organizers said they will go ahead without him. A coalition of local and statewide groups, including faith leaders, community health advocates and labor groups have called the town hall. They invited Issa and took out a full-page advertisement in The San Diego Union-Tribune after they did not hear back from him. (St. John, 2/21)
