Description of Pictures: JEC HEARING: Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage: Assessing Key Census Indicators of Family Well-Being in 2008
Washington D.C. – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney, Chair of the Joint Economic Committee (JEC) will convene a hearing to examine the to-be released Census Bureau data examining trends in health insurance coverage, household income, and poverty through 2008. The hearing entitled, “Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage: Assessing Key Census Indicators of Family Well-Being in 2008,” will take place Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 1 p.m. in room 210 of the Cannon House Office Building. Witnesses will examine trends in health insurance coverage, income, and poverty over the 2000-2008 period, as the economic policies pursued during the previous administration left most families behind and ill-prepared to weather the current recession. The hearing will examine how policies being pursued by Congress and the Obama Administration will work to counter those trends and improve the well-being of families across the country.

NOTE: I was using two cameras this time. The Nikon was set to take much larger images which take up too much space to post on the web site. So any image greater than 1.75MB or so wasn't uploaded. If you'd like specific unposted images, let me know and I'll email them to you.
Recognize anyone? If you recognize specific folks (or other stuff) and I haven't labeled them, please identify them for the world. Click the little pencil icon underneath the file name (just above the picture). Spammers need not apply.
Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
