Chet Edwards Town Hall Meeting

On August 26, 2009, TAC members, along with fellow conservatives, made their voices heard at a town hall meeting on healthcare hosted by Rep. Chet Edwards. TAC members made shirts and posters protesting the left's healthcare reform.

Of the twenty questions asked at the meeting, 13 were explicitly against the H. R. 3200 bill, five were for it, and two were undecided or pertained to something other than healthcare. Congressman Edwards kept his cool throughout most of the meeting as he dodged questions, twisted statements, and observed signs ranging from criticism of "Chedwards" to criticism of the reform package in general ("Obamacare is assisted SEIU-icide"). Near the end of the meeting he was visibly angered at the accusation that he was "allowed" by Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders to vote against Cap & Trade. Chet Edwards insists that he has not yet decided how he will vote on HR 3200. He also made it clear that he had not yet read it during the town hall. Now is the time to make calls and pressure him to vote now. You can call his Brazos Valley office at (979) 691-8797. Make it clear that if he votes for this monstrosity, you will not vote for him in November of 2010.
