McCaskill hosts more health care forums

St. Louis – U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill is hosting another round of forums on the Obama administration's plans to overhaul the nation's health care system.

The Democrat will appear at gatherings Monday in Hannibal, Moberly and
Kansas City.

A number of forums around the country have been boisterous. Six people were arrested earlier this month in St. Louis County at a forum hosted by Democratic Congressman Russ Carnahan.

A McCaskill forum in Kennett earlier this month was relatively calm, but sessions in Poplar Bluff and Hillsboro drew louder and sometimes angry crowds.
