HANDS OFF MEDICARE, Healthcare YES! Insurance Companies NO!

Thursday, June 16th at 9 AM
in front of the Moscone West Center
on 4th St. at Howard St., San Francisco.

Once again, the America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) Convention is being held at the Moscone Center. CARA, Gray Panthers, SAN, and dozens of other organizations will demonstrate in support of Medicare for All and against the insurance industry.

AHIP represents the insurance companies who insure the healthy and avoid the sick, and charge rates that most of us cannot afford. Their Thursday, June 16 program features Presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty and Senator Tom Daschle. These speakers oppose proposals that remove the health insurance industry from our healthcare system and support the Republican’s plans to “voucherize” Medicare and block grant Medicaid. You can look at their agenda here: http://tinyurl.com/42jes56

Meet in front of the Moscone West Center
on 4th St. at Howard St., San Francisco.

From Powell Street BART or MUNI:
Walk 1 block East, toward Ferry Building, to 4th St.,
then 2 blocks South to Howard.
