Afternoon Delight in Denver Tomorrow on Health Care
Via Firedoglake, I see the "teabaggers" will be out in force tomorrow at a health care event being conducted at a medical clinic for the homeless by Colorado Reps. Diana DeGette and Jared Polis, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. More details here.
I'll be attending, so if you're in the neighborhood, come on down.
Nancy Pelosi, Jared Polis and Diana DeGette will be at Denver’s Stout Street Clinic Tomorrow.
When: August 6, 2009, Time: 2:00 PMSpeaker Pelosi and Members of the Colorado Delegation will see firsthand how the economic recovery funds are being used to offer vital health care services, create jobs, and lay the foundation for health insurance reform,” DeGette’s office said Wednesday in a statement.
Where: Stout Street Clinic
2100 Broadway, Denver, CO
Pelosi also plans to use the Denver visit to stump for the health-care reform measure that passed the House Energy and Commerce Committee, of which DeGette is vice chair, last Friday.
Rep. DeGette played a key role in brokering the compromise between the Blue Dog Democrats and Progressives that ensured the passage of H.R. 3200, the America’s Affordable Health Choices Act, Friday night by the Committee on Energy and Commerce.
As to the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless:
The mission of the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless is to work collaboratively toward the prevention of homelessness and the creation of lasting solutions for homeless and at-risk families, children and individuals throughout Colorado.
And if you're working during the day, Rep. DeGette is holding a telephone town hall tomorrow evening. You can participate from your home phone:
Finally, I would like to invite you to join me for a telephone town hall this Thursday, August 6 from 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM (MDT) on health care reform.

I look forward to hearing your questions about the health insurance reform pending before Congress.
