DeGette holding health care meeting

Posted by Richard on September 2, 2009

Congresswoman Dianne DeGette is meeting with constituents this Thursday about health care. In person this time, unlike her earlier "phone forum." Of course, it's mid-morning on a weekday, so those of us who are gainfully employed are pretty much shut out unless we want to take time off from work. I'm going to pass, but if you're free (and one of her constituents — they'll probably check IDs), by all means attend. Here are the details:

When: Thursday, September 3 at 10:00 AM

Where: The Molly Blank Conference Center, National Jewish Health (1400 Jackson Street, Denver)

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

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 go, maybe you could ask her why H.R. 3200 mandates fewer choices instead of more (only four "qualified" plans are allowed, and their coverage, deductibles, co-pays, etc., are strictly defined) and why Health Savings Account plans are not allowed. And please report back in the comments.
