Senator Claire McCaskill (D) held another town hall (in a long series of health care reform town halls) at 8:00 a.m. today at the the Johnson County fair grounds a few miles west of Warrensburg. Approximately two hundred fifty to three hundred people attended the one hour long event. The building had been set up to seat five hundred. Those in favor of health care reform appeared to be in the majority, though there were a handful of teabaggers at the back of the audience who shouted on occasion. Other than those individuals the vast majority of people at the event were polite and listened to the questions and responses.
