Thank you for your interest in attending the Inauguration of President-elect Barak Obama as the 44th President of the United States of America on Tuesday, January 20, 2009. I will be retired from the United States Congress, effective at Noon on Friday, January 2, 2009. As a result, I will not have tickets to provide for the Inauguration.
Please submit your request for tickets to the Inauguration, complete with your contact information, to:
Representative-elect Kurt Schrader will take office on January 6, 2009 and his office will distribute tickets for the Inauguration.
Member of Congress
The Healthy Americans Act would mandate health coverage for all Americans and put an end to employer-based health insurance. Instead, employees would get extra pay to spend on a health plan.
The government would subsidize care for the poor.
Oregon Representatives Earl Blumenauer, Darlene Hooley, and David Wu were on hand to reintroduce the measure in Washington DC.
