From the Denver Post:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is scheduled to visit a medical clinic for the homeless north of downtown Denver on Thursday afternoon.
As reported in today’s Denver Post, the California Democrat is planning to tour Stout Street Clinic, a walk-in medical facility and pharmacy run by the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless.
The clinic is receiving funds from the federal stimulus package, part of which will help build electronic medical records to cut down on duplication and health care costs.
Rep. Diana DeGette, a Denver Democrat, and vice chair of the committee crafting the House’s health reform bill, and Rep. Jared Polis, D-Boulder, are also scheduled to attend.
We’re hearing rumors that the right-wing protesters who have been forming ranks over the last few weeks in anticipation of the August recess are being directed to drop whatever they’re doing and head downtown tomorrow. As most of you know the latest batch of ‘townhall crashers’ have been whipped into enough of a frenzy to get downright nasty with, well, just about anybody–Nancy Pelosi, though, has been inculcated into the minds of these protesters as only a step or two removed from Satan himself. You can just imagine what a high-value target they consider her for disruption, preparations that have been made for this contingency…should probably be doubled.
This is a last minute Protest Alert
Nancy Pelosi, Jared Polis and Diana DeGette will be at Denver’s Stout Street Clinic Tomorrow.
When: August 6, 2009
