Tuesday, the Texas conservative coalition held a town hall meeting to address the concerns of health care professionals. State Representative Carl Isett listened to discussion from local doctors and health care workers on the industry's growing inability to provide sufficient access to health care. Isett, who is also President of the TCC, says the organization is currently formulating proposals aimed at addressing the health care crisis.
