Rosa DeLauro

Rep. DeLauro, Ned Lamont and State Rep. Donovan Address CCAG

John Kantrowitz was kind enough to invite me to a CCAG BBQ/Fundraiser in Woodbridge, CT, after Senator Dodd's Blogger outreach in New Haven, CT on September 26th, '09. They had set up for video but their cam was not working so I whipped out mine and started filming... IOW, sorry for the blackout in the first few seconds and sorry I didn't get the intro and beginning of Ned Lamont speaking:

Video of Rep. Rosa DeLauro and Speaker of the House and State Rep. Chris Donovan below the fold.

Sen. Chris Dodd on CBO Scoring of Healthcare, Credit Card Bill and FISA

I have a tonne of video to sift through. This is the very first one that I am done editing, most of them are pretty long and there will be more from Dodd as well as some from Ned Lamont and Rosa Delauro.

Stay tuned... These events all took place on Saturday, September 26, '09.

DeParle, Dodd and DeLauro Get Hammered on Single Payer

Yet again, protesters turn out to demand single payer at another forum on healthcare:

A “town hall discussion” on health care reform held at Griffin Hospital Saturday became contentious when advocates of a single-payer health insurance system shouted at U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd to put the plan back “on the table.”

A group of Yale School of Medicine students also challenged Dodd and U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-3, on the issue, but they didn’t repeatedly shout their questions without being called upon. And so, unlike the earlier advocates, they were not taken out of the building by security guards.

At least 200 people jammed the hospital cafeteria for the session, which gave the public a chance to ask questions of not just Dodd and DeLauro, but also Nancy-Ann DeParle, director of the White House Office of Health Reform.
