President Obama Holds Town Hall Meeting in New Hampshire to Discuss Health Care Reform
They lined up on both sides of the road to Portsmouth High School -- several hundred opponents, fairly evenly divided, for and against health care reform.
The common denominator was volume.
"You're gonna bankrupt this country," shouted Sam Cataldo, of Farmington, NH. "We don't need Obama and his crew telling us how to die."
At a town hall meeting this past week in Portsmouth, N.H., Obama said, ''If you don't have health insurance, you will finally have quality, affordable options once we pass reform. If you do have health insurance, we will make sure that no insurance company or government bureaucrat gets between you and the care that you need.''
He said people could keep their current doctors and health plans and not have to wait in lines. He promised his plan would help the economy without worsening the federal deficit. He denied it would encourage euthanasia of older people or cuts in their Medicare coverage.
