Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke (D-NY) will be holding this coming Monday a “town hall meeting” which might be the very first of many for Brooklyn’s Crown Heights.
Clarke will be lecturing and listening to residents’ views on healthcare reform proposed by the Obama administration.
“Come out and discuss the proposed Health care Reform Bill and how it will affect you and your family,” she called in a press release.
The meeting to be held at the Jewish Children’s Museum on August 31, is titled “H.R. 3200 America’s Affordable Health Choices Act – What’s in it for you”
In a recent interview on MSNBC, Clarke spoke about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to pass a bill in the House without a public option and whether her hard line on the matter will end up hurting or helping the chances for a bipartisan bill.
Asked what she’ll do if President Barack Obama personally asks for her vote, Clerke said: “While we want to make sure ‘yes we can’ do it for our President, we want to make sure that ‘yes we can’ do it for our constituencies.”
