The meeting was a follow-up to a meeting he had with the same constituents in August, 2009. Rockefeller listened to their stories battling health insurance companies and explained to them how the new health care reform legislation would benefit them. Rockefeller highlighted the eliminating of caps and the benefits of having all citizens part of a universal health care system.
