After U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price’s news conference Thursday morning, Sen. Bob Corker greeted a faint breeze of a protest. Standing in front of the Council for Alcohol & Drug Abuse Services on Spears Avenue, Corker spotted four pro-Obamacare signs — and two people. Anna Grabowski, 63, asked why congressmen didn’t draft a single-payer health care reform plan. Corker didn’t bite. But Eric Reese, 37, told the senator that his conservative colleagues in Washington were going to put together a plan that is simply too harsh for the poor and the deathly ill. To that, Corker offered a rebuttal.
