Protestors In Louisville Want Yarmuth To Conduct Town Hall Meeting

Louisville, KY – A number of opponents to the President's health care proposal have spoken out to their respective congressional representatives at town hall meetings in recent days.

Some Louisvillians who gathered outside the federal building are concerned no town hall meeting has been set for the Third Congressional District. Jennifer Decker says she wants a chance to speak to Congressman John Yarmuth.

"I want to know if he knows how many federal mandates are in the bill that are going to take choices away from the people and deny freedom to the people."

Yarmuth's office released a statement, saying the congressman will hold three town hall meetings via telephone, and one in-person town hall meeting at the end of the month.
