Schauer In Coldwater

April 9, 2010

COLDWATER (WTVB) – It was a hostile standing room only crowd in Coldwater that greeted and at times jeered Representative Mark Schauer yesterday afternoon as the Seventh District Congressman attempted to find support for the recently passed healthcare reform bill which Schauer voted in favor of.

However, most of those in the audience at the Burnside Senior Center would have none of that and peppered Schauer with questions about how the government can afford to pay for the reform measure.

At least one bit of new information surfaced from the session when Schauer said an effort is underway to locate a community-wide family health center for Branch County, not to be confused with the hospital in Coldwater.

The family health center would provide primary care, along with physical, mental and dental care. Schauer said there are centers in Battle Creek, Marshall and Jackson already in operation.
