Wendell Potter in VA Beach: Health care law “already saving the lives of millions”

Virginia Organizing, Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy and Empower Hampton Roads were prompted to hold the “Real Dialogue on Health Care” forum because they feel that many people are unaware of what is in the health care law. The forum’s keynote speaker, Wendell Potter, is a former insurance executive who testified numerous times before Congress on the need for health insurance reform. Potter, a well-respected journalist and author of the book “Deadly Spin,” has become a leading critic of the health insurance industry, exposing strategies health insurance companies use to drop coverage and deny care in order to boost their profits.

Since we were at Home Depot a lot that week, we noticed this tri-grip ratcheting screwdriver set was on sale for . We bought a couple of extras for other people. It turned out to be a lifesaver, because screwing in the anchor and reenforcing brackets was too hard to do manually, and absolutely imposible to do with a power drill. The ratcheting screwdriver’s large tri-gip handle adds a lot of torque to your screwing ability! We also soaped our wood screws — this made them go into the wood much easier.

We also got a bunch of small LED flashlights since they are on sale too — like 25 @ /each.

BACKSTORY: Too much raccoon noise in the attic! Time to install a built-in ladder, so that we can get up into the attic in 60 seconds to scare away any animals before they decide to move in again. Project cost exceeded 0 and involved 5+ Home Depot trips.
