More than 400 people turned out for a rally in Northeast Wisconsin supporting health care reform. Congressman Steve Kagen compared the “public option” to having public and private schools, which he says works pretty well for the education system.
“I think Steve’s done a very good job in handling all the pressure and the controversies surrounding this matter,” said Jay Kopplin. Another person in attendance, Judy Vogel, said health care reform is “very important.”
The Appleton Democrat said supporters can’t miss this opportunity to create a competitive and transparent system. He said federal lawmakers are still doing some fine tuning to the proposal as the bill is written in “invisible ink right now.”
The AFL-CIO hosted the Thursday event on the UW-Green Bay campus.
