More than 12,000 Residents Attended Butterfield's Telephone Town Hall on Healthcare Reform

On Wednesday, Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) held a telephone town hall meeting to answer residents' questions on how the Affordable Care Act will affect North Carolina families. The live telephone town hall began at 6:00 p.m. and lasted over an hour. More than 12,000 district residents joined the call.

"There is a lot of misinformation and disinformation surrounding the costs and benefits of healthcare reform," said Congressman Butterfield. "Because of this, I thought it was important to hold a forum to give residents direct access to the information they need by answering questions specific to them."

In June, President Obama's signature health care reform law survived a repeal threat when the Supreme Court ruled to uphold the law and its constitutionality.

In North Carolina's First Congressional District, under the law, 94,000 seniors have received Medicare preventive services without paying anything out-of-pocket; more than 5,000 young adults have coverage through their parents' health insurance; about 400 small businesses received tax credits to expand care to employees; and 34,000 children with preexisting health conditions are no longer denied coverage by insurers.
