C-SPAN White House Meeting & Barangrill

Hey Joniphiles!

So like every morning at 6 am I woke up and got my knitting and coffee and started watching C-span (I'm not only a Joni junkie, I'm a democracy junkie too!) Nancy-Ann DeParle led a healthcare reform forum at the White House yesterday and there were many industry leaders there. One woman who represented Consumer Reports (I think) was talking about how most people who have health insurance don't even know what they have. She said ... "It's like Joni Mitchell says ... it's some "of the crazy you get from too much choice!" There were many harrumphs of acknowledgement around the table! WOOHOO Joni rocks.

Sue followed-up her original post with the following information and link:

Her name is DeAnn Friedholm [Health Reform Director] from Consumers Union and she quotes Joni at about 34 minutes into the over 2 hour forum. If you are a C-span junkie you can watch it here:
