Karaffa invites Sen. Webb & Warner to Valley townhall meeting

~Using own money to rent facility and advertise event~

His name is David Karaffa, he is 25 years old, and he is an Augusta County resident. He's a cardiac RN at the local hospital and he has many questions about the Democrat nationalized health care bill.

David wants to talk to his U.S. senators about his concerns. The problem is his senators are nowhere to be found. He has tried calling, emailing, sending faxes -- everything he can think of -- with no response other than form letters that don't answer his questions.

Since Jim Webb and Mark Warner were not holding any townhall events anywhere in the Commonwealth of Virginia, David decided to invest his own money and rent the auditorium at Riverheads High School in southern Augusta County and set it up so all the senators have to do is show up.

Invitations have been sent to Sen. Webb and Warner.

Friday morning David called Glenn Beck's conservative radio program to spread the news about his townhall meeting. He went on the air and explained his concerns and why he felt it necessary to go out on his own to set up a townhall meeting that may end up with the names of the senators on signs sitting on empty chairs.

But a townhall meeting ... with or without the senators ... gives local residents the opportunity to bring their concerns about nationalized health care to a public forum. This young man is moving forward in his quest to receive answers to his health care questions.
