Ulster County hosts healthcare forum

Mar 23, 2017 12:04 am
William J. Kemble reports in The Daily Freeman an aide to Republican U.S. Rep. John Faso (R-Kinderhook) observed March 21 as 150 gathered at the Ulster County Office Building in Kingston to discuss health care. Faso has already indicated he will vote for the American Health Care Act, or Trumpcare. Ulster County Executive Michael Hein organized the event and said, “There have been over 50 votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act over six years to do precisely that. If you were tasked with doing that you think, at the end of the day, you might have the most perfect, well-thought-out plan you have ever seen. ... But, instead, what we have is a Frankenstein plan that is being assembled at the last minute to buy votes and rushed to meet some sort of artificial deadline.” Faso’s district Director Ryan McAllister sat in the front row and heard a lot of boos for his boss. “Whatever he’s paying you, it’s not enough to sit here and take this,” New Paltz resident Maureen Ford said. “Don’t take this personally, but my question is how much money will it take ... before he will show up at a town hall meeting?” Read the full story in The Daily Freeman.
