"There are 147,000 people in my own district without health care
," Scott said. "Our health care needs are going to explode. If we don't do something to change the status quo, our country is not just heading to the cliff, but off the cliff. The public option is simply a mechanism to make health care companies more competitive. You are going to be able to go into a system where you will not be at the mercy of health insurance agencies."
For reference, population in Scott's district is 629,732, and according to him 147,000 are without "healthcare." There are 2 hospitals serving the area, and the ER's stay packed. There are also several free clinics for adults, all with long waits and rationed care. For kids, there is PeachCare For Kids - http://dch.georgia.gov/00/channel_title/0,2094,31446711_31946830,00.html

This is a real question - I have never thought about this before...
Who paid for this ‘Health Fair’??
Is it our tax dollars at work to give Mr. Scott some face time??
