Do you think the much publicized town hall meetings have helped or hurt President Obama’s health care reform plans?
|Health care is definitely for the people, all of the people. I had the good fortune to travel abroad when I started my professional career out of college, and I found that people in Paris and England and other places were doing their best to make health care available to everyone with little to no cost.

|Unfortunately, al lot of [the] town meetings have had a negative tone set, which allowed misinformation [to spread]. People needed to go into it with an open mind to see how it actually affects them.
|I think the president’s doing a good job, but when people started talking about [how his plan is] going to hurt more than help, I started thinking that it was a big right-wing strategy.
|The right wing and media both manufactured and produced chaos by only showing the sensationalism, and failed to depict a sound view of this enormous health care package.
|Absolutely, 100 percent hurt it. Because what’s getting attention is the crazy people showing up to take the attention away from the issues at hand.
|It appeared to be going in the right direction for the president, but when the town meetings came around, it seemed like it just fell apart.
