FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS ALIVE AND WELL IN NORTH EAST PA

Monday August 24, 2009 over 200 citizens exercised their Constitutional Right to Free Speech at a Town Hall meeting in Dickson City,Pa with US Congressman Chris Carney.

 

Congressman Chris Carney
 
Contrary to other media reports, this gathering was well behaved and orderly.
 
No one was turned away.  Those with disabilities were able to access the building easily.
 
Congressman Carney started on time and fielded questions and comments from over 20 citizens.
 
There was the usual clapping for important remarks from the crowd but nothing unruly. The attendees were well versed in the health care issue.  The questions asked were thoughtful and probing.  The consensus from those in attendance indicated they did not favor the current health care reform bill as presented.
  
Points on both sides for the Health care debate were offered.
 
My intention here is not to play to one group or another.  I merely want it said that the "mob" scene portrayed at other events was not demonstrated at this one.
