DFA board member invited to the President's speech tonight!


Unless you are still digging out from your email inbox after a long summer know that the President will be addressing a joint session of Congress this evening.  Cable news today is all health care all the time.  I am so please that a member of Doctors for America's board, Dr. Zaneb Beams, will be attending the President's speech as a guest of Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.  Dr. Beams, pediatrician and mother of 4 young children, has been an outspoken advocate for health reform.  She spoke eloquently last week at Rep. Hoyer's town hall and wrote an opinion piece that was published in the Baltimore Sun. The Doctors for America family will be watching the president...but we will also be watching for a glimpse of Dr. Beams in the balcony.

If you are waiting for the President's speech to start tonight and need something to read.... Senator Baucus has circulated an outline of a plan that he would like to move forward and Igor Volsky did a nice side by side comparison of the various plans.
