Himes holds third & largest health care forum
Rep. Jim Himes held his third and largest health care forum in Bridgeport Thursday evening.
The forum was moved from City Hall to the Klein Auditorium late in the afternoon to accommodate a larger audience. Roughly 600 people attended.
Some in attendance said they hadn?t seen such heated public discourse since the Vietnam War. Himes? emphatic declaration of support for a public health care option was met with both applause and boos. Many other speakers? statements were met with boisterous reaction as well.
Himes? previous forums were packed to capacity and some attendees actually had to be turned away due to space.
