Questions About Health Care Popping Up

August 18, 2009, 5:53 PM by Cherlene Richards

Questions About Health Care Popping Up
Questions about health care reform are popping up just as fast as new ideas come forward.

Hoping to offer answers as well as take input, we're starting to see more discussions and meetings being held in KELOLAND.  Tuesday night, AARP is hosting a discussion in Aberdeen and Senator John Thune will host two discussions in the coming weeks.

Opinions on the ideas to reform health care that are coming from Capitol Hill are being heard loud and clear across the nation. Many in KELOLAND have opinions and concerns of their own.

"I just hope that we can move forward, to maybe some simple program, that gets the ball rolling,” Bob Caselli said.

"I think we're taxed enough as citizens,” Matthew Czernoi said.

And some believe the country needs some sort of reform, but at what cost to taxpayers?

"It wouldn't be that bad, I guess, but I just don't like that we'll be taxed.  I don't know if everybody knows that healthcare (isn’t) free,” Czernoi said.

Others are more concerned about the millions of Americans living without health care and say a compromise needs to be met.

"I still think the bottom line is, everyone should have the opportunity, everyone in this country,” Caselli said.

Tuesday's event in Aberdeen is open to the public.  It begins at 7 p.m. at Northern State University's Johnson Fine Arts Center.  A panel of experts will be present, including former U.S. Senator Tom Daschle.
