BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) - Three northeastern Oklahoma lawmakers are planning a health care forum in Broken Arrow.
State Sen. Bill Brown and state Reps. Mike Ritze and John Trebilcock - all of Broken Arrow - say they plan a presentation of the health care issues at stake under a health care reform plan proposed by President Barack Obama.
Ritze, a physician, says there are problems in the nation's health care system. But Ritze says he thinks the federal approach will only make the problems worse and create an undeniable tax burden for future generations.
Ritze says he plans to critique the proposed federal plan and offer some alternatives.
The forum is planned Sept. 29 at Arrow Heights Baptist Church in Broken Arrow.
