Live from Sacramento!

OK, not quite yet… But I will be soon! I’m at John Wayne right now, waiting for my flight to our fine state’s capital. Once I arrive, I’ll be lobbying for more affordable and accessible health care all day. I know, I know, you can thank me later. ;-)

No really, I’ll be asking Senator Lou Correa and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger what they intend to do to live up to the promise they (as well as all the other legislators with consciences) made when “The Year of Health Care Reform” began. We’re already over halfway done with 2007, and we still don’t know if anything will be passed this year. What gives?

Many of my friends must worry about their monthly HMO premiums. My dad must worry about all the paperwork he must fill out, just to see his podiatrist. My best friend must worry about his hospital bill. My cousin must worry about her childrens’ care. What gives?

This is why I’m now in line to board a flight to Sacramento this morning. The first boarding call has just been made. Probably within 2 hours, I’ll start talking health care reform. Wish me luck!

(Btw, I’ll update you all on what’s happening throughout the day… So you won’t be completely without me!) :-)

    I for one CAN’T WAIT for hourly updates from Andrew’s day in Sacto!
    Let’s hear it all, Andrew – how was the plane ride? Pretty full? Any interesting seatmates? Did you get a snack? A drink? Any turbulence? Smooth landing? Did you have to wait for any checked bags? And the ride from the airport – shuttle/taxi/pre-arranged?
    I’m dying to know. Don’t spare any details!

    Well, my job at the Capitol is done. We talked to several staffers for several OC legislators, and we told them all our stories on health care. They were all receptive to our message, but no one made commitments, save for Solorio’s staff.

    Gotta go now, but I’ll talk more later. :-)
