Here’s an interesting webcast event that has just been brought to our attention, one that is being conducted by the National League of Cities (NLC), held in conjunction with giant international law firm DLA Piper. More often than not, events like these slip under the radar screen, as they are not usually advertised to the public directly through the media, only through corporate communication channels. The details to this webcast event are below.
Rest assured the NLC will be informing the webcast audience about the blessings of government-run healthcare and how it will supposedly take a huge burden off of the cities and municipalities that the webcast is targeted towards. These local government leaders will then have their marching orders to convince their employees of the wonders of ObamaCare, and on and on it goes. And lo and behold- look who’s one the speakers on the guest panel- none other than noted tax cheat and failed Obama Cabinet pick Tom “Puff” Daschle. Coincidence? Hardly.
These behind the scenes efforts of the Obama Administration, along with the accompanying propaganda campaign are part of the effort to create a sense of inevitability about this law and to bury any chances of its repeal. The time is now to resist these propaganda efforts with intensified efforts on our side to communicate the truth about socialized medicine to those who haven’t fully formed an opinion on the matter.
Tune in August 3rd at 12:00 p.m. (EDT)
With the passage of comprehensive health care reform have come many questions about the impact that reform will have on America’s cities and towns.
The National League of Cities, with the generous support of ICMA-Retirement Corporation (RC), an NLC Capstone Corporate Partner, will be hosting a webcast to address these questions. The NLC TV webcast – which will help you understand the responsibilities that America’s cities and towns will have around health care — will be shown live on Tuesday, August 3rd at 12:00 p.m. (EDT).
The webcast will be introduced by Gregory Dyson of ICMA-RC and moderated by Rita Patel, partner, DLA Piper.
The webcast will feature expert speakers, including former Senator Thomas Daschle, shed light on the future of health care in America, and answer questions about the impact the law will have on cities and towns in the years to come. Speakers will discuss reforms that will take place immediately and those that will take place over the next several years, and what you must do to insure that your city or town is in compliance with the law.
The speakers will include:
* Thomas Daschle, Senior Policy Advisor, DLA Piper, Washington, D.C office and former U. S. Senator, South Dakota
* Paolo Pasicolan, Associate, DLA > Piper, Washington, D.C. office
