AUGUSTA, Ga.  —  
Hundreds of people crowd an auditorium in Evans for a town hall meeting on health care reform sponsored by U.S. Rep. Paul Broun.
As Washington considers health insurance reform legislation, congressmen are hitting the streets.

They’re holding town hall meetings, and crowds of people are showing up.

In Georgia, U.S. Reps. Paul Broun, a Republican, and Hank Johnson, a Democrat, held meetings to discuss a major Democratic plan that would create a large scale government funded health insurance option for millions of Americans who don’t have coverage, and they're hearing strong opinions on it from their constituents.
