SF Pacific Heights Obama Fundraiser protesters demand protection for Medicare

Tonight, SF single payer advocates will say: "Medicare Yes! Insurance Companies No!"

President Obama's $35,800 per plate fundraiser tonight, April 20, in San Francisco's Pacific Heights will be protested by advocates who want him to defend Medicare, and then expand it to everyone in the country. This stands in contrast to recent Republican proposals to convert Medicare into a voucher program, which single payer advocates say would subsidize health insurance companies, but not provide adequate coverage to seniors in the future, and would essentially destroy Medicare. Protesters who support Medicare-for-all will also be at the larger but less expensive Obama fundraiser at San Francisco's Masonic Auditorium, 1111 California Street today, starting at 4 pm.

What: Protesters at President Obama's Pacific Heights 35,800 per plate fundraiser to say: "Medicare Yes! Insurance Companies No!"

Where: Home of Mark Benioff, 3200 Jackson Street (and at the Masonic Auditorium, 1111 California Street) San Francisco

When: 6 to 8 pm tonight, Wednesday, April 20, 2011 (and at the Masonic Auditorium starting at 4 pm)
