DC Lobby Days for Single-Payer This Week
Join us for Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Health Care lobby days for single-payer. On both lobby days, we will break into teams and visit Congressional offices with single-payer amendment materials prepared in advance. As Congress moves closer to voting on whatever final legislation is crafted, we want to make sure the single-payer amendments are strongly supported. This may be our final opportunity in this legislative cycle to weigh in. The work done now sets the groundwork for the future and for finally achieving single payer.
House lobby day – Wednesday, October 14th
- Lobby for Weiner HR676 substitute single-payer amendment votes
- Lobby for protection of Kucinich state single-payer option amendment
We’ll have two sessions of lobbying effort – one early and one later in the day as we may catch more Members as they finish their floor work. Meet your fellow LCGHC members and friends in the Rayburn House Office Building cafeteria at 10 a.m. on Wednesday if you’d like to help lobby Congressional members from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and if you’d like to come in the afternoon, meeting in the Rayburn HOB cafeteria at 2 p.m. to hear reports from the morning crew and get marching orders for the afternoon lobby efforts
