Thursday, September 5, 2013 by MARK RECCEK in Local News

Health care and immigration took center stage during a legislative update meeting hosted by U.S. Congressman Charlie Dent, R-15th, the evening of Aug. 23 at the Jewish Community Center, Allentown.

During the first half of the meeting, Dent's responses to questions involving the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare, were marked by heckling from audience members and sharp outbursts.

"Truthfully, my office has not received much information from Health and Human Services," Dent said. "This implementation is not going well."
