Senator goes face to face with healthcare dissent

New York Times, August 12, 2009

More than 1,000 people showed up in the largely Republican town of Lebanon, PA, for a town-hall-style meeting to discuss healthcare reform with Senator Arlen Specter. Many in attendance said the Obama administration's plans for a new healthcare system were just another example of a federal government that had again gone too far, just as it had, they said, with the economic stimulus, the auto industry bailout, and the cap-and-trade program.
