After a man had his finger bitten off in a town hall in Thousand Oaks Wednesday night, the national furor over health care will continue its series of forums tonight with Rep. Tom McClintock hosting his third of four scheduled town halls at Grass Valley’s Veterans Hall.
“I’ll make a five-minute presentation on health care and the general financial condition of the nation, and then we’ll open it up for questions,” McClintock said.
The congressman said “emotions ran high,” at a similar meeting in Granite Bay Wednesday night but he did not expect trouble here. Most people in the Granite Bay audience were against President Obama’s proposed changes but were respectful of divergent views, he said.
“I believe most people are concerned about their country,” McClintock said. “We’re all Americans, we’re all in this together. People were respectful in Granite Bay, I don’t know why it would be any different in Grass Valley.”
