Republicans want to hear from Arkies about health care. Ideas of their own? We'll see.

GOP NEWS RELEASE

Little Rock, AR – The Republican Party of Arkansas (RPA) has announced a “Listening to Arkansas” Tour in which state party chairman Doyle Webb, state legislators, and local medical personnel will host health care town hall panels in order to bring ideas and action together for real health care reform for the everyday Arkansan.
 
The first of several town hall meetings will take place this Saturday, August 22 at 125 N. Market Street in Benton at 1:00 p.m.  The forum will be open to both the public and press, and will include RPA State Chairman Doyle Webb, State Representative Ann Clemmer, State Representative Ed Garner, and State Representative Dan Greenberg.  Each panelist will have five to seven minutes for opening remarks, and will then go on to take questions and comments from the audience.
 
“It is so vital that we have an open discussion with voters across the state about health care reform.  We want and need to allow people to voice their concerns and opinions in an open arena while making public our options,” said Chairman Webb.  “There are some great ideas out there that need to be considered, but the current Obama-Pelosi-Reed health care experiment just won’t cut it.”
