Senator Boxer runs first ever virtual fundraiser

Shares

Hey, the Senator continues to innovate, in addition to a lot of other impressive work!

On June 30th, Barbara will be hosting our first ever virtual
fundraiser, live and online! We hope you'll join us for this
first-of-its-kind event — and help us post strong grassroots
fundraising numbers before the critical end-of-quarter deadline.

Barbara
is going to be appearing live via webcast from San Francisco to share
the latest information about our campaign and answer some of your
questions in real-time — and you can just tune in over the internet to
watch, listen, and participate.

And it couldn't come at a more
important time. Tuesday, June 30th is the next major fundraising
deadline for our campaign. With former HP CEO Carly Fiorina poised to
jump into the 2010 Senate race and challenge Barbara any day now, we've
got to make a solid showing on this quarter's finance report to
demonstrate the depth and breadth of Barbara's grassroots support.

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO RSVP FOR THE JUNE 30TH EVENT, FOR JUST $25 OR MORE:

Given her lack of support for a public option in healthcare reform, I'd have a hard time supporting her.

In fact, Senator Boxer does support a public option. She signed onto Sen. Sherrod Brown's resolution in May:

Here's the text of that resolution:
“Resolved, That the Senate recognizes that any efforts to reform our Nation’s health care system should include as an option the establishment of a federally-backed insurance pool to create options for American consumers.”

Brent Blackaby

And here's an excerpt from her recent speech on the Senate floor about health reform:
"I don't think it is that complicated. If you stress prevention, and if you have a plan out there–a nonprofit plan–that can keep the insurance companies honest and make sure they are not overcharging us, and if you cover the uninsured, I think those are the principles I am looking for. I don't think it is that complicated. But we hear our colleagues on the Republican side come out to the floor day in and day out bashing public plans. Let the Republicans introduce a bill to repeal Medicare. That is a public plan. Our seniors love it. The Republicans fought it in the 1960s. The Democrats passed it under Lyndon Johnson. Why don't they come here and say they want to repeal Medicare?
"Another public plan is veterans' health care. It is a government plan. Why don't they come here and put forward a proposal to completely do away with veterans' health care? I will tell you, the veterans in this country will rise up–the Republican veterans, the Democratic veterans, the Independent veterans, the old and young veterans. Why don't they do that, instead of coming here and saying public plans are bad? How about SCHIP, the public plan that allows our children to be covered, our poor kids? Why don't they come here and say our children should not be covered and let's repeal it? How about our military? They get free health care through the public domain. Should we now cancel that and contract it out?"

Brent, you're right. My apologies. My brain mixed up Sen. Boxer and Sen. Feinstein. Craig, feel free to wipe my original comment off the face of the earth so as to avoid any confusing.
