Area Congressmen Oppose Obamacare, Set Town Hall Meet

U.S. Reps. Don Manzullo and Joe Walsh who represent McHenry County were among the entire Republican block of the House who with three Democrats voted to repeal Obamacare yesterday.
The measure goes to the Senate now where Majority Leader Harry Reid has promised he won't even let it get to a vote.

Meanwhile Manzullo, Walsh and U.S. Senator Mark Kirk will hold a town hall meeting in Crystal Lake Saturday focused on cutting spending,  reducing the deficit and putting Americans back to work.
The open meeting's set from 2 to 3:30 pm Saturday in the Conference Center at McHenry County College. Doors will open at 1:30 pm on the east side entrance to the building. The closest parking lot is Lot B.

Joining the three Congressional members will be Dr. Andrew Biggs of the American Enterprise Institute. Each of the Members and Dr. Biggs will give a short presentation and then do a Q and A with the audience.
