Trying to sway Murphy’s health care vote

Democratic Congressman Scott Murphy, who represents Greene and Columbia counties as part of NY-20, is turning out to be one of the key swing votes on the health care reform bill. Murphy voted no against the early version of the bill that passed the U.S. House of Representatives. Now, as the Senate and the House attempt to reconcile two bills, his vote is being sought by protesters and other groups buying ad time.

Four-time Dutchess County Legislator Joel Tyner (Rhinebeck/Clinton) has organized a Brown Bag Lunch Vigil for Healthcare Not Warfare to bring our troops home from Afghanistan and Iraq tomorrow, Mar. 17, from noon to 1 p.m. in front of Rep. Scott Murphy’s offices in Hudson at 623 Warren St.
