UNCW students discuss healthcare reform

The healthcare debate came to UNCW Friday. The College Republicans sponsored “Hands Off my Healthcare”. Speakers, including radio host Curtis Wright, talked about details of the proposed healthcare reform. Organizers said college students need to be more involved in the healthcare reform. They hoped the event would spark debate and discussion throughout the campus. “If we brought it to them, instead of maybe just handing out flyers, which is also what we're doing, but having actual speakers - they could just come by on the way to class and learn something in passing,” said Ryan Ivey of College Republicans. “We know they probably won't just come to a forum or come to a conference.” Some students signed a petition to stop the government's healthcare reform; others spoke in favor of the proposal. No matter how students felt about the issue, the event helped start the discussion.

Its nice to see college

Its nice to see college students getting involved. My advice to all the students out there: don't listen to your liberal professors. Vote based upon your knowledge of the issues and then you can hold your head up high and truly say, "yeah, my vote matters." Voting the way someone wants you to makes you a puppet. No matter which way you vote, let your vote come from you.
