On November 3rd, 2009, 134 small business owners from 24 states went to D.C. to advocate for health care reform. Among them were nine small business owners from Nebraska and North Dakota. The small business owners held a press conference at the Capitol with Senator Harkin (IA) Senator Landrieu (LA) and Representative Halovorson (IL).
Following the press conference the small business owners went to an event at the White House with Kathleen Sebleius, Secretary of Health and Human Services. The small business owners ended thier trip with visits to the offices of thier senators and representatives.
