Another DeGette health care meeting

Posted by Richard on September 11, 2009

Rep. Dianne DeGette (D-CO1) initially declined to meet with the peasants in person, opting to hold only a "phone forum" on health care during the recess. But apparently, she's seen the light — or felt the heat. Or maybe she now sees such meetings as an opportunity to rally her mostly leftist constituents into action in support of government-controlled health care.

DeGette hosted a health care meeting last Thursday morning (convenient for government workers and the unemployed), and now she's scheduled another for this coming Saturday (via email):

When: Saturday, September 12 at 10:00 AM

Where: South High School's Auditorium (1700 E Louisiana Ave Denver)

What: Discussion with constituents of the First Congressional District about health insurance reform

There is no RSVP process. Entrance will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors will open at 9:15 AM.

As you know, Congress is currently debating legislation that aims to provide health care coverage for all Americans and reduce costs. I appreciate your communication on this issue and hope that you will continue to share your thoughts with me.

Please check my Web site ( for other upcoming events.

If you're in the Denver area and free, I suspect attending the ACT! for America "Citizens in Action" Conference with Brigitte Gabriel would be a better use of your time. But if you're inclined to express yourself on health care, by all means go for it. But be prepared with a knowledgeable comment or a tough question or two. You might want to take a look at key parts of H.R. 3200 (PDF, 1018 pages), or at least take a look at John David Lewis's excerpts and analyses regarding nine important questions, including the issue of health care rationing.
