The Republican 2012 budget eliminates Medicare. If successful, Medicare will change from a guaranteed set of benefits to limited vouchers to buy private insurance, as well as reduce Medicaid funding by turning it into a block grant system.
This is outrageous.
Healthcare-NOW! and Physicians for a National Health Program invites you to join a national educational conference call to learn more about these threats, and what we can do to show that Medicare is the solution to our health crisis, not the problem.
The call will be held Monday, April 11th at 7pm (E). Please RSVP here.
Featured speakers include:
DeAnn McEwen, California Nurses Association/National Nurses United Council of Presidents, ICU nurse at Long Beach Medical Center
Olveen Carasquillo, National Board Member of Physicians for a National Health Program, Chief of Division of General Internal Medicine at the University of Miami School of Medicine
Dr. Margaret Flowers, Congressional Fellow, Physicians for a National Health Program

Thank you for fighting back against these efforts to destroy our social safety net, and standing strong for improved Medicare for All.
