I’ll be at the DPC Summit in a few weeks. I’m from Washington State, which is DPC friendly. I’ve contacted my US Senators just to meet with them and see if they have interest in both talking about DPC as part of overall solution to our health spending issues, as well as getting their opinions on the bills in committee seeking to fix the HSA question. I’m also trying to get time with Rand Paul from KY, as he seems to be one of only a few voices talking outside of the box. I’d like to see what he knows about DPC and whether he’s willing to talk about it, Raising awareness of what we do is, in my opinion, a major hurdle we need to overcome.
Questions: do other attendees plan on seeing particular Senators/Representatives that they feel are key players? Rather than trying to make appointments as onesies and twosies does anyone want to use this forum to coordinate meetings where a number of us can meet at one time with key politicians?
