First salvo? UPDATE II

Posted By on Wed, Sep 13, 2006 at 10:34 AM

A$a skeds a 1:30 p.m. news conference today, topic not mentioned. Presumably, he won't be introducing himself and playing home movies of happier days in Benton County. The guns of September?

UPDAT IIE: We're informed the subject is substantive -- access to health care and reducing health care costs. Here's a link to the news release. More sound than fury. But a word about the call for more encouragement of health savings account. Being able to put money into a tax-advantaged account is of little value to people who are spending every cent they make to survive. And, as an unhappy user of an HSA, I can testify from personal experience that it's a dangerous and bewildering road to go down and can have dire consequences in years of unexpected medical costs.

P.S. to campaign staff: We've been fielding complaints about multiple SUVS with A$a! stickers parking every which way -- wrong direction, etc. -- around the A$a HQ on North Pierce. Thought you might want to know neighbors were talking.
