Washington, DCToday, Congressman Frank Lucas met with Garry Bull, a third year medical student attending Oklahoma State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Mr. Bull made the long trip to Washington, D.C. to join the thousands of Americans who attended yesterday’s rally to express their opposition to Speaker Pelosi’s health care bill.

“Today, I had the opportunity to meet with Mr. Garry Bull and discuss the health care legislation currently before Congress,” stated Lucas.  “As a medical student, his insight into the issue was very interesting.  Like many of my constituents, Mr. Bull is strongly opposed to Speaker Pelosi’s government run health care plan.  I join him in that opposition and will vote against the bill when it comes up for a vote.  I thank him for taking time to visit with me.”

Mr. Bull and Congressman Lucas discussed the negative impact Speaker Pelosi’s bill would have on the medical industry in Oklahoma as well as across the country.  In addition, Mr. Bull brought well-wishes and prayers from the members of his church, who sent their thanks to Congressman Lucas for his continued opposition to Speaker Pelosi’s federal government takeover of health care.

“In addition to being a medical student, I am also a father, a veteran, and an American” stated Bull.  “Everyone wants to improve our health care system, but simply put, this is not the way.  Even if you put all of the issues aside, our country cannot afford this legislation.  When I think of this bill, I think of my two beautiful little girls and the massive debt we are trying to strap to them, and it outrages me.” 

Mr. Bull, who originally hails from Weatherford, Oklahoma, is the father of two girls.  In addition, he is a First Lieutenant in the Oklahoma Army National Guard and is a veteran of the United States Navy.
