Rep. Lamborn Holds Town Hall Meeting in Colo. Springs
Congressman Lamborn addressed a standing-room only crowd at the Stargazers Theater today, and finally got it right. This time there was enough room to accommodate everyone who wished to attend. According to a Colorado Springs Gazette article, around 450 people were present, and of these, around 10 percent consisted of hecklers more interested in drowning out Lamborn than presenting any compelling arguments in favor of the poorly-named "single-payer option." There is nothing optional about the socialized healthcare scheme that the Obama Administration is trying to ram through Congress, as failing to sign up for it could result in imprisonment of up to one year and a hefty fine. Moreover, Republican efforts to include tort reform have been shot down in flames.
