Corker picked Covington to launch the first of 29 town hall meetings in different counties throughout Tennessee, and it didn't take long for the audience to hear Corker's stand on the President's proposed health care reform bill.
"My guess is the house bill will likely go in the trash can, okay? It's just not practical, and doesn't stand the test," Corker said.
Corker said he believes the proposed health care bill is too expensive, and has too much government control. Both points seemed to earn the senator a lot of support from the crowd of onlookers in Covington.
"Everything that the President has done so far is driving up costs," Corker said. "You know, when he began this debate, it was about driving down costs."
