On Thursday, March 5, 2009, the White House will host a summit on how to reform the healthcare system.
The 120 invited guests include lobbyists for various interest groups including the private-for-profit insurance industry (AHIP), some members of Congress including Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus who has already ruled single payer “off the table,” and various others concerned with healthcare.
Thanks to your phone calls and emails, Rep. Conyers has been invited to attend!
But 1 single-payer supporter in a sea of 120 private insurance lobbyists and supporters isn’t enough. We need adequate representation at this (and future) summits which properly reflects America’s depth of support for single-payer healthcare.
Call The White House (202) 456-1414 or (202) 456-1111. Tell them that 1 single-payer supporter in the White House Summit on healthcare is not enough. We want all the people who Rep. Conyers asked to attend be allowed a seat at the table.
