Health care town halls

U.S. Rep. John Boozman, R-Rogers, says he’ll hold a town hall meeting on health care reform Friday, and U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder’s talk on health care next Tuesday has been moved to a bigger venue in Little Rock. 

Boozman’s event will be 10 a.m. Friday at the Jones Center for Families in Springdale.  Boozman’s office says the forum will feature a short discussion with health care professionals, after which Boozman will take questions from the audience.

The congressman says he plans to hold additional town hall meetings in Fort Smith and Harrison later this month.

Meanwhile, Snyder, D-Little Rock,  says his talk on health care, set for noon Tuesday, has been moved from the Clinton School for Public Service to the Wally Allen Ballroom at the Statehouse Convention Center. 

Hecklers shouted down Snyder and fellow Democratic Rep. Mike Ross, D-Prescott, at a health care forum last week at Arkansas Children’s Hospital.

    Tort reform is key to a successful health care plan. We must have it. Look at malpractice insurance rates. Who pays for it. We all do. Who benifits? Mostly trial lawyers. Many times I’ve seen insurance companies settle frivolous cases without a trial only to increase premimums to cover losses. It’s out of control and must be stopped for the good of the people. Please examine this and do something. This is a very big deal.
