Rep. Hall holds health care forum in Monroe

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of people received an opportunity to speak out about health care reform at a forum hosted by Rep. John Hall (D) in Monroe Thursday.

In the course of the hour-long forum held at the Monroe Senior Center, Hall was peppered with questions about the funding of the health care overhaul and its affect on Medicare.

Hall said he supports a hybrid health care plan that keeps private insurance but provides choices for people who cannot afford coverage.

The tone of the discussion turned antagonistic at times, with some angry constituents threatening to vote Hall out of office.
