Over a Hundred Turned Out for Health Care Town Hall Forum with Schilling
QUINCY, IL--Bobby Schilling, Republican candidate for the 17th Congressional District of Illinois, held a town hall forum to discuss the current state of our health care system, at the Holiday Inn hotel in Quincy. Over 100 people gathered to discuss the size of the current health care bill, pre-existing conditions, tort reform and portability of health care.

"One of the major problems with this bill is the fact that it weighs over 10 pounds," said Bobby Schilling, "This bill should be broken up into at least 20 sections and each section should be voted on separately. There is no reason to jam through all of this at once."
"One of the major problems with the health care system is that insurance companies are forced to compete state by state," Bobby continued, "There are over 3,000 insurance companies in America, it would lower costs dramatically if you allowed them to compete nationally rather than just state by state. Rather than wasting trillions of dollars on a public insurance company, we should use the untapped competition opportunites that we have now and open up the insurance industry to be able to compete nationally."
