I attended Darin LaHood’s April 19 town hall meeting in Washington. I admire U.S. Rep. LaHood’s courage for holding an open mike meeting in the 18th Congressional District. Unfortunately, Rep. Rodney Davis of the 13th District has refused to hold open-mike town hall meetings.
At the meeting Darin LaHood pledged he would not support a bill that would undermine pre-existing conditions and that pre-existing conditions must be part of any new health care bill. You may view his town hall video on You Tube at Darin LaHood Town Hall Meeting. His comment can be found at 12 minutes.
However, U.S. Rep. LaHood , along with U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis, voted yes for H.R. 1628 , which is the GOP health care plan. The GOP bill will diminish and undermine health care, which would include pre-existing conditions.
