Pajamas TV, a conservative and center-right Internet TV company, hostied an interactive virtual forum featuring policymakers, doctors, and other experts on health care Wednesday night.
It gave Americans a chance to engage lawmakers and healthcare experts on one of the most important issues the nation faces.

Pajamas TV CEO Roger Simon said a public debate was sorely needed.
"Pajamas TV's online health care forum is a vast departure from typical inside the beltway hearings and events," he said. "This forum will offer real people the opportunity to ask tough questions of the political leaders and other experts who will help decide the future of our healthcare system."
The event was streamed live at PJTV.com from Pajama TV's Washington, D.C. television studio.
PJTV encouraged citizens to use email, Twitter and YouTube to engage directly with lawmakers and other healthcare specialists about the consequences of government-run health care.
"Conservatives are becoming more and more active online and are just beginning to realize the power and importance of social media," Simon said. "This hearing will be a significant milestone as members of the online community are connected directly with Capitol Hill insiders to address the weighty issue of health care."
Among some of the participating policymakers were House Republican Whip Eric Cantor, R-Va., Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., chairman of the House Republican Study Committee, and Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., the top Republican member on the House Ways and Means Committee.
In September 2008, Pajamas TV became the first online TV venture to have a skybox at the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis, Minn.
