Our neighbor's daughter goes to Georgetown University-Washington DC and just received this email, which she forwarded to us. Why is he spending time speaking with students @ Gtown instead of addressing us, here in Ohio?
Based on the zip code of your home, it appears that you are either a constituent of (or near since some zip codes are shared by multiple Congressional districts, live near the district of) Congressman Dennis Kucinich, I wanted to make sure you were aware that he is speaking here on campus at the invitation of the group,Georgetown Solidarity Committee.
Rep. Dennis Kucinich on Universal Health Care: Keeping a Public Option on the Table
Wednesday September 23
White-Gravenor 201 A
Below is the description from Georgetown Solidarity Committee about the Congressman's talk:
Representative Dennis Kucinich will be speaking on the subject of /Universal HealthCare:
Keeping a Public Option on the Table/. Mr. Kucinich (D-OH) has twice run for U.S. President, both times citing universal health careas the preeminent issue motivating his campaigns, saying, "no injustice is greater in this country than the fact that 30 million people go without health insurance in this, the richest nation in the world." As one of the most vocal advocates for publicly-financed health care, he is currently galvanizing support on Capitol Hill for an amendment to House Resolution 3600. If it passes, this resolution would allow for individual states to adopt single-payer health care systems if they so choose.
The address will be an overview of the health care debate from Mr. Kucinich's perspective as well as a legislative update on his amendment (which currently has 86 cosponsors). He will speak for 30-40 minutes to be followed by a question/answer session.
