Oswego, NY, Jan 20, 2011 — Last night, Republicans in the House of Representatives held their largely symbolic vote on repealing health insurance reform. The measure won't be taken up in the Senate. And President Obama would veto a repeal of his landmark legislation.
North Country Congressman Bill Owens voted with his Democratic colleagues to keep the new health care laws.
On Tuesday night, Owens held a town hall meeting by telephone with thousands of his constituents to talk about the issue. One of the people listening in was reporter Dave Bullard.
