Rep. Taylor says he won't support health care plan


MOSS POINT —  U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor wanted to talk about shipbuilding and other issues before taking up health care at a town hall meeting in south Mississippi. The crowd did not.

About 700 people showed up for Monday’s meeting in Moss Point and chanted “health care” when the south Mississippi Democrat began discussing other topics.

Taylor made it clear that he’s “not going to vote for” health care reform being pushed by President Barak Obama.

The plan called for creating a government run option to compete with private insurance. Proposals for nonprofit cooperative ventures have emerged as an alternative.

Taylor, a member of the conservative Blue Dog Democrats, has said he’s concerned about the cost of the plan.
