    But what if those hearts and voices are basing their beliefs on lies and misinformation? For instance 'death panels', as they've been described and decried, have never been a part of any of the bill(s).

    Hey there Jerry McNerney: I find it very commendable that you are conducting a Veteran's roundtable. I am a mother of an Iraqi war vet and it's much needed. Especially re: Post Traumatic Stress Disorders. What I would like to see done is that all veteran's receive full medical coverage - period. Not just if they are in the Guard or active duty. I think that all veteran's and their families - wives and children, receive full medical coverage. It's a shame that our vet's aren't treated better than they are. So, kudos to your outreach to the veteran's. However, I think you should do a town forum on this medical reform bill. And I hope you really hear the hearts and voices of what I believe are the majority, and that is, this medical reform bill is a dangerous debacle. We need reform, but not Obama's socialitic views and 'death panel' quality care. Vote against this bill please.
