BROOKLYN - Brooklyn residents' questions about health care were answered Monday night at a town hall meeting.

President Obama's health care overhaul plan is sparking heated debate with many people not fully understanding the proposal. Organizers of the meeting say they hope the public's uncertainties were cleared up.

One resident says she had heard the proposal was controversial, but was unsure of the specifics until she attended the meeting. Most in attendance say they are still unclear about who will pay for the health care reform.

A second meeting will be held Sept. 1 at 424 East 19th St. from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
