Hagan Won't Hold Health Care Town Hall

North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan doesn't plan to hold any health care town hall meetings, some of which have drawn angry protesters around the country.

Hagan is spending the August recess doing photo opportunities and meeting with health care workers. She's also talking with constituents during open-door meetings.

Hagan's spokeswoman Stephanie Allen says the open-door meetings and other appearances are more productive for discussions on health
care reform.

But the limited speaking engagements didn't stop hundreds of Republican activists who visited Hagan's office last week with signs criticizing the health care bill.

    It is months past the election of Obama as President and it appears some voters are still while waiting in line to cast a vote and campaigning for their candidate.It's over folks.The same for Health Care Reform.Why would Hagan have a town meeting at this point.I think it is a "DONE DEAL".It would take an act from GOD to stop it.Not sure about the abortion haters that call men fools.That statement is definitely not from a conservative Republican Christian,or is it?Real "Christian" people are watching this surge of anger from the {Non}Conservative Republican Party.The Republicans in Congress had better change their values instead of using the convictions of honest Christians to swing a vote on election day.The needs of the people are the paths for our representives to lead and to follow.Coverage for counseling about LIVING WILLS was removed.A far cry from a DEATH PANEL.Do you have one?They do exsist.

    The myths being perpetuated by Obama and his bumper sticker "disciples".Myth 1: "You can keep your health care if you like it." You can keep your current health care plan AS LONG AS 1)Your company follows government mandated rules 2)You never,EVER need to make a change (marriage, child) or want to search for a competitive policy. Because once you do, you are forced into the government controlled healthcare exchange that DICTATES what the insurance companies have to offer and their price.MYTH 2:"There are no "death panels".Of course the term death panel is not mentioned which the Libs are trying to twist. The death panel concept was in fact in the Senate Bill because it was REMOVED from the Senate version.You can not remove what does not exist!! And of course we have seen in the past few days that these same "death panel" ideals are in the VA system. MYTH 3. "Abortions are not paid with tax money". It has to be specified that tax money can NOT be used. That is how the law reads now.

    She does not want to be in the same room as people she does not see as good as she is. Has no intention of listen to what the people want.

    Government run health care is not possible ever hear of the VA. If they can't run an organization made up of only veterans how in the he@@ do you expect them to be able to run one where everyone is a member.
