Whatever your political views, you’ve got to give it to the Obama Administration for being media-savvy as the health care reform battle rages on.
In advance of Thursday’s 10 a.m. EST “Bipartisan Meeting on Health Reform,” which is open to the press and will be streamed live at WhiteHouse.gov/live, the White House has put the full-court press on the press.
At this link: http://www.whitehouse.gov/health-care-meeting/bipartisan-meeting, which leads you to a White House Web site page titled, “Putting Americans In Control Of Their Health Care,” the White House has links to related blog posts (including one posted as of Tuesday afternoon titled, Will the Republicans Post Their Health Plan… and When? from White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer), President Obama’s remarks on the upcoming meeting (Read the President’s remarks on the meeting, 2/9/10), and links to more about House and Senate ideas from both parties.
There are also sections on the page titled, “What Reform Means to You,” “The President’s Proposal,” and “Republican Ideas.”
