Help Fix Washington Health Care System

Really.  The Washington State Senate wants your input.  They have scheduled a 2-day online Town Hall-type meeting on health care reform with an emphasis on how to improve the delivery of health care in our state.   Sign-up online.  Participate online.  Pretty simple.

The meeting will be held next Tuesday and Wednesday, January 22nd and 23rd.  Discussion topics include, but are not limited to, affordability, choice and availability.  Tell your stories.  Make suggestions. 

Panelists include Senator Karen Keiser and Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler, as well as members of the Senate's Health & Long Term Care Committee and health care professionals.

And, remember to thank them for doing this.  It's a huge step forward in including the public.  Yeah Senate Democrats!

Whatever happened to the Blue Ribbon Commission report from last year? It was full of incremental steps that together were supposed to make a difference. As far as I can tell, it was essentially DOA.

I've lost faith in our state electeds to actually accomplish something. We have a budget surplus, and saving some is great, but when will we ever ACT?

Usually I’m all for getting the public involved. And really that’s not different here. But it gets old year after year, promise after promise, when nothing of substance changes.
