Marshall in Warner Robins Last Night

More than 1,000 people showed up at Jim Marshall town hall meeting last night in Warner Robins.

About 50 people — some for and some against health-care measures occupying the House and Senate — were, among other things, urging Marshall to choose sides.

Kimberlyn Carter, a member of Organizing for America, said she was appreciative to Marshall for having the town hall meetings so all sides could be heard. Her group also took the time to educate people on H.R. 3200, which is in line with the Obama administration’s goal of reducing health-care costs, giving choices and guaranteeing affordable health-care options for all Americans.

More than 1,000 people packed the Homer J. Walker Jr. Civic Center on Monday evening for Marshall’s second town hall meeting in as many weeks. Marshall said at the meeting he still did not know on which side of the argument his opinion would fall, but insisted all ideas and views needed to be brought to the table.

Marshall hasn’t specifically come out for H.R. 3200. But, he said, he’s strongly against anything that continues with current trends.

“The current track we’re on ... guarantees bankruptcy for the USA in a very short period of time,” he said. “Health-care reform needs to fix the fiscal course we’re on. And if it doesn’t do that, it doesn’t deserve the name reform.
