Podcast: UL talks health care with US Rep. Lynn Westmoreland
We hear so many conflicting stories on health care in the news, it’s hard to know what to believe. That being the case, I figured it may be best to talk to someone who’s there. So yesterday, I caught up with US Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) yesterday to chat about what exactly is going on in the House over health care.
Rep. Westmoreland tells me that he doubts the House will vote on Saturday because Democrats know they don’t have the votes. We also touched on the GOP alternative health care plan, which was scored by the CBO this week. Rep. Westmoreland also responded to criticism on the failed of Republicans to address this issue when they were in the majority.
He also stressed the need for taxpayers and constituents to make their voices heard. So, please call your representative (click the link and enter your zip code).
Rep. Westmoreland represents Georgia’s 3rd Congressional District and was elected in 2004. He serves on the Transportation and Infrastructure, Small Business, and Oversight and Government Reform committees.
