Watch parties planned for tonight’s health care address

Those interested in watching President Barack Obama’s address to Congress tonight about health care reform – and want to debate the issues with other Springs residents – can attend one of two watch parties.

Organizing for America, a part of the Democratic National Convention, is organizing watch parties across the nation.

The president’s address is intended to clarify his stance on key issues of reform – including the so-called public option, which would allow people to buy individual insurance from a nationwide pool, subsidized by government dollars.
