Health care has long been on the minds of Wisconsinites, according to US Senator Russ Feingold. He told WIBA in 17 years in office, and 1,200 listening sessions under his belt, the subject that comes up the most has always been health care. Feingold says generally people have been in favor of universal coverage although he admits during his August gatherings there was opposition to the idea.
The Wisconsin Democrat says the passionate dialogue seen at Congressional listening sessions nationwide has forced lawmakers to be more specific with their approach to reform.
Feingold is holding sessions today in Columbia County and Monday in Dodge County.
