At Indiana forum, skepticism of overhaul reigns
Wall Street Journal, August 14, 2009
At a town-hall meeting in Indiana, Rep. Joe Donnelly, a Democrat in a conservative district, was told by constituents they don't trust the government to be their doctor. Two hours before Donnelly's scheduled arrival in Kokoma, 75 people were lined up for 72 seats. By the meeting's start time of 6 p.m., the number had swelled to about 500. A number of people carried signs supporting an overhaul, but the majority of questioners voiced strong skepticism about handing more responsibility for healthcare to the government.
