Both parties rally supporters for Peters' health care forum
Detroit News staff and wire reports


West Bloomfield Township -- Given the tone of e-mails sent out by the Oakland County Republican and Democratic parties, a health care town hall meeting tonight sponsored by U.S. Rep. Gary Peters could be rowdy.

On Monday, Oakland County GOP Chairman David Law urged supporters to ask the Bloomfield Township Democrat to "stop the government takeover of health care." Law urged those opposed to health care reform to show up at 5 p.m. to get seats at an event he said is expected to be heavily attended. Those who can't get in were urged to join a rally outside the school against health care reform.

In response, the County Democratic Party sent out an e-mail to its supporters this morning urging them to show up at 4 to thwart efforts by reform opponents "to pack the town hall meeting so that supporters of Gary Peters and health care reform cannot get in." Supporters are also urged gather outside the forum throughout the evening.

The forum for 9th District residents takes place at West Bloomfield High School, and no signs will be allowed inside the building. Peters has held smaller discussions with constituents in recent months, and says residents will be able to ask questions about health care proposals at Tuesday's meeting.
