Health care forum features spirited discussion



Published: Mon, September 14, 2009 @ 10:25 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — The comments ranged from “health care is a right, not a privilege” to the questioning of the federal government’s constitutional authority to overhaul the health care system.

WFMJ Channel 21 and The Vindicator sponsored a live 90-minute health-care forum today from the Jewish Community Center at 505 Gypsy Lane. The forum featured U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Niles, D-17th, answering questions from citizens about health care.

There were about 60 to 70 members of the public at the forum.

Ryan said he’s 90 percent sure that Congress will approve significant changes to health care later this year.

There are those concerned that changes are taking too long and others feel “it’s being jammed down their throat,” Ryan said.

He got a lot of "Softball" questions thrown at him! Should have been a "Real Town Hall Meeting"! Looked almost staged! Way to GO Ryan!
