Health care meeting in Birmingham draws 400

Alabama Congressman and Democratic candidate for governor, Artur Davis led a panel discussion on the nation’s health care system.  Davis chaired the event and served as moderator.

In all, 18 panelist representing businesses, health care providers like hospitals, health care managers, insurance companies and poor Alabamians took seats on the stage of UAB’s Alys Stephens Center where many of them, prompted by questions from Davis, delved into the issue.

In an unsurprising turn of events the past president of the Business Council of Alabama said that businesses want no part of government mandates and were against a public run health system.  Next the CEO of Cooper Green hospital  said that the  system is broken and must be revamped.

I feel the same way as the author of the first comment on the story:  The comments get better.

Who was there to represent taxpayers who will have to pay for this scheme if it passes Congress?

Maybe Davis stacked the deck with sympathetic panelists?
