Picket for Single Payer Healthcare

At a Luncheon for

Health & Human Services Secretary

Kathleen Sebelius

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.

Asking someone in a live conversation is the best way to build events. And over
50% of our activists do not have email.

Attached is a leaflet. Please forward this alert.

Please let us know how you can help.

Medicare for All

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,."
