As the debate on health insurance reform rolls on, we at the White House want to keep finding ways to reach out to Americans all over the country. We’re excited to introduce what we hope will be a new series that will allow us to engage different regions and states, hear their perspectives, and address their questions.
For today's first installment, the White House and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will welcome Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island for a live online video chat at 5:30PM EDT. The Secretary and the Senator will sit down here at the White House in a session streamed live at WhiteHouse.gov to answer the questions that the Senator hears most frequently from Rhode Islanders.
And of course, as we like to do around here, in addition to being streamed live at WhiteHouse.gov, the Secretary and the Senator and will also take questions live through the White House’s video chat Facebook application, where folks can be a part of the conversation as it is happening.
UPDATE: We had some streaming issues, but got a full recording with plenty of questions from both Facebook and Rhode Island. Watch the full video:
