Hagan Talks Health Care Reform But Not At Town Hall Meeting

Senator Kay Hagan spent some time in the east Monday talking health care reform.

The first term Democrat visited Lenoir Memorial Hospital for a brief tour of the facility's wellness center. She then spoke to doctors about President Obama's plan for health care reform.

The private meeting was one of several scheduled here in the east Monday. The senator has been under fire recently by critics who say she has been dodging public meetings such as town halls.

Hagan says, "I'm going around the state. I've got meetings set up to speak to numerous people, a lot of roundtables and also office hours that we'll be holding across the state for the next week and a half."

    I have e-mailed her office on 4 seperate occasions only to get the same standard generic response thanking me and telling me how to contact them in the future. To date, she has never personally responded to my concerns regarding several important issues before Congress. On the other side of the coin, I also contacted Senator Burr about the same issues and his office called me soon after to talk with me about my concerns. This tells me who really cares what the people of NC think. Hagan is not going to listen to the people of NC; she' going to vote party line. She's falling in lock-step with the Dems. regardless of the cost/results to the people of NC. My opinion of her election to the senate is another "one big A mistake" for our state and country.

    Come on people, she knows what is best for you, she has her finger on the pulse of NC citizens, and her hand "IN YOUR POCKET". You don't have any right to tell her what to do, she knows best! How dare you doubt her, just because she is hand picking who she talks to and announces where at the last minute! I hope you are all happy, I bet she is in her ivory tower right now crying her eyes out (with laughter). What a joke and no idea what you wish, nor does she really care. Get her out ASAP. At lease we have Burr (R) standing up for the people of NC!

    What a joke you are Kay Hagan. What a joke. I can assure you in less than 6 years when you are running again I hope you are ready to retire. Nobody even if they supported you will trust you after this move. This must be the most Chicken attempt by an elected official yet. I guess you guys should ask yourself hummm Why are people not happy about this? Maybe that is because the majority of people in every major news polls out there do not support this type of Reform. Nobody disputes its need at some degree but we cannot continue to run everything from Washington. You guys cannot even run your own meetings much less my healthcare. Get a Clue do us all a favor resign or Vote NO!

    Don't be too hard on Kay. She's just doing what her master Harry Reid told her to do. She works for Harry and Nancy not for us.
