Lee to host health care forum Friday in Oakland

By Josh Richman
Tuesday, April 27th, 2010 at 5:57 pm in Barbara Lee, healthcare reform, U.S. House.

Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Oakland, will host a discussion on the health care reform bill from 1 to 3 p.m. this Friday, April 30, in Evergreen Missionary Baptist Church, 408 W. MacArthur Blvd. in Oakland.

Lee’s office says she’ll be joined by “a diverse group of health care experts” speaking on how, and on what timeline, the new laws will affect people and families. Seating is limited, so please RSVP to HealthRSVP2010@mail.house.gov or (510) 763-0370.

The event should be an interesting bookend to the one she held last June at the very same church, at which she had urged progressives to keep demanding a single-payer health care system to ensure that any reform package passed by Congress would at least have a robust public option. In the end, of course, it had neither.

    BaLee needs a “diverse group” who undoubtedly will agree with what she says, since she shows “ba-lee” any understanding of the complex legislation.
