Join With Other Bay Area Activists and to Let President Obama Know About Health Policy That Works: Single Payer!
It's a San Francisco "Sidewalk Summit" where we're going to tell President Obama that the policy which would meet his goals of bringing down premiums, bringing down the deficit, covering the uninsured, strengthening Medicare, and stopping insurance company abuses, is an improved "Medicare for All", also known as "single payer".
We will be doing this as President Obama is holding a high profile, televised meeting with Republicans and Democrats in Washington DC about our healthcare crisis. But once again the President and Congress are not including any discussion of the only real solution to America’s health care problems – expanding and improving Medicare to cover everyone in America.
Join with activists from the California Physicians Alliance, California Alliance for Retired Americans, Gray Panthers, and Single Payer Now to let President Obama know that we want "Medicare for All"!
This is just one of several similar rallies being held around the country this Thursday.
