PLEASE NOTE LOCATION CHANGE FOR EVENT IN WASHINGTON, DC
Since the beginning, the discussion on health reform has been flawed because of the exclusion of a single-payer system in the debate. With universal healthcare off the table, so goes a meaningful discussion on controlling costs and improving access to care.
On the same day President Obama convenes a “make-or-break” bipartisan summit on healthcare reform, patients, nurses, and doctors will meet in the streets of Washington DC and around the country to demand a real solution – improved Medicare-for-All. Join us for a Sidewalk Summit on Thursday, February 25th, at 9am at the NE Corner of Lafayette Park (H St and Vermont) in Washington DC or find one near you.
Since no single-payer supporters have been invited to the White House Summit on health care, we urge you to call the White House and invite President Obama to listen to a real solution to the health crisis at the Sidewalk Summit for Improved Medicare for All.
Call the White House at 202-456-1111 or click here to follow a sample script.
No matter what the Congress and President do, if anything, the time is now to lay the foundation for a real health care reform movement that cannot be ignored.
