Senator Hagan meets with local officials during Wilmington visit

US Senator Kay Hagan came to Wilmington Monday to meet with local leaders. North Carolina's junior senator talked with representatives from New Hanover County, Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach and Kure Beach. Top issues they raised were the need for the Cape Fear Skyway Bridge and beach renourishment. Senator Hagan also spent time discussing the health care reform debate raging around the country. "I know a lot of people's insurance premiums have increased dramatically, and yet their wages are not going up. The other area is pre-existing conditions. We need to be sure in this country that if you have a disease like diabetes, that you can still get health insurance," said Senator Hagan. Hagan said she will not support a reform bill unless it is deficit neutral and helps eliminate fraud, abuse and waste from the health care system.

Hagen is a Bust!

Here's a word of advice to all of you out there who supported Hagen for the senate, next election, know what you're getting before casting your vote. She has turned out to be the most unrepresentative representative this state has ever seen. She refuses to return calls, emails, faxes and any other form of communications you might think of. She hides from her constituents like a bat from daylight. She does however, fit right in with the Liberal Washington crowd who wants to do things their way! They work for us, we don't work for them! It's time to clean house and get rid of these politicians who disregard the Constitution and their oath of office. Change is coming, alright! Change for the resurrection of Liberty and Freedom, just as our Founding Fathers had planed it.


is the WORST representative we have had in a while. I have NO CLUE where she stands...because she doesn't respond to faxes, emails or letters....McIntyre and get a response with their positions within a WEEK... Cant wait to vote this one out...I only voted for her to get rid of the incumbent...

Kay Hagan and Health Care

If Kay Hagan will not support a health care plan that is not "budget neutral", then she should be opposed to the ones currently proposed. All projections indicate our deficit will worsen if a national health care plan is enacted. I'm afraid the bottom line is that Hagan really supports a government(so called public) option plan, but we'll see how she votes later.
