Sunday: dinner with Senator Whitehouse


It will be interesting to hear Senator Whitehouse's take on how Tom Daschle's downfall will impact the Obama administration's efforts to change health-care.

From the junior senator, in a release sent last week:

Washington, D.C. – As Congress and the Obama Administration work to reform our broken health care system, U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) will host a community dinner in Warwick on Sunday, February 8, to listen to Rhode Islanders’ personal stories about the crisis in our health care system – and their ideas about how to fix it. 

“As I travel around Rhode Island, I hear stories from people whose lives and whose health have collided with our broken, dysfunctional health care system,” said Whitehouse.  “Now that we have a new president and a new commitment to make reforming health care a priority, I want to bring these stories with me to Washington and make sure Rhode Island’s voice is heard as we begin this critical debate.”
