Picket for Single Payer Healthcare
At a Luncheon for
Health & Human Services Secretary
11am Mon., June 22
SF Fairmont Hotel - 950 Mason
Dear Single Payer Activist,
Please picket with us on Monday, June 22, from 11am to 12:15 at a $500 Democratic
Party luncheon featuring Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The
picket will be at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel at 950 Mason.
It is very important that Secretary Sebelius knows there is a vibrant movement for
single payer. As you know, discussion of Medicare for All ( HR 676 ) has been ruled
of the table. Monday's picket is a very important part of the national campaign to
have single payer ideas discussed.
We need your participation.
We need you to call 5 or 10 or 25 people on our Action Alert list.

On June 16 on NPR radio Sebelius said
Interviewer: Can you say flat out it's just never going to be single-payer health
insurance, and we're going to try to write it, if we can, so that itwon't ever be?
Secretary Sebelius: "Oh I think that's very much the case,."
