Thanks for reading my first blog. I’m new at this so I’ll await comments from the more experienced to give me direction.
Last month was a real thrill for me. Being asked to be in two press conferences at the U.S. Capitol with Senators was quite an honor. Check out the pics for details. Congressman Clyburn also asked me to speak at a House Democratic Caucus on fighting critics on the new health care law. Speaker Pelosi, House Majority Leader Hoyer and other’s that you’d recognize from Keith and Rachel’s show were there. We’re trying to edit the dvd’s of the two press conferences to post on YouTube but we’re not having great success. Any suggestions would be appreciated
We started running a new TV spot on the new health care law’s benefits to small business on ABC Columbia WOLO. Watch it and see my dig at the end about “death panels”. The SC Healthare Voices (SC Appleseed Legal Justice Center, SC Fair Share, AARP-SC and The SC Small Business Chamber of Commerce) just finished our first round of public forums on implementing the new health care law. More to come on that.
And finally for this first blog attempt, start calling your SC House and Senate members and asking them to override Sanford’s veto of the cigarette tax legislation. I know he hasn’t done it yet but it’s coming probably next week.
