Press release time - Rep. Sinema to host health care tele-townhall

From the Democratic caucus of the Arizona State Senate -

Assistant House Democratic Leader Kyrsten Sinema, D-Phoenix (District 15), Rep. Patricia Fleming, D-Sierra Vista (District 25) and Rep. Daniel Patterson, D-Tucson (District 29) will host a telephone-town hall on health reform on Oct. 29

The tele-town hall will take place just before major health reform bills go to the U.S. Senate and House floors for votes, and Sinema will share information about the blended bills, including benefits and costs.

As part of the White House Health Reform Task Force, Sinema also will answer questions and hear residents’ stories, ideas and concerns about health reform.

Arizonans for Health Reform Tele-Town Hall
When: Oct. 29 at 5 p.m.

Instructions to join the call/RSVP: Please e-mail with the date of the forum in the subject line and your name, address and phone number included in the e-mail. You will receive a reply e-mail with the phone number to call. Each participant must e-mail their own information separately.

Sinema is one of 32 state legislators nationwide - the only state lawmaker from Arizona - selected for President Obama's White House Health Reform Task Force. Working in the task force, Sinema will share best practices and lessons learned from Arizona, which will help shape national health reform.

“Our country's health system is broken and families and businesses are being crushed by high health care costs," Sinema said. "The American people, including right here in Arizona, deserve better.”

That includes health reform that:

- Reduces costs to make health care affordable
- Protects a patient's choice of doctors, hospitals and insurance plans
- Assures quality affordable health care for all Americans
