During last night’s State of the Union Address, President Obama said, “If anyone from either party has a better approach that will bring down premiums, bring down the deficit, cover the uninsured, strengthen Medicare for seniors, and stop insurance company abuses, let me know.”
So to let him know about a better approach, PNHP’s Congressional Fellow, Dr. Margaret Flowers, is going to the White House today to ask President Obama to meet with representatives from the Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Health Care (a coalition of nurses, doctors, patients, and health care advocates who support Improved Medicare for All).
Please join Dr. Flowers in urging the President to meet with advocates of real reform (improved Medicare for all) by calling the White House at 202-456-1111.
Tell them, “I’m letting you know that improved Medicare for all (HR 676) is better than the health bill proposed by Congress. Meet with Dr. Flowers and the Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Health Care to about why.”
Read Dr. Flowers’ open letter to President Obama, asking the President to meet with us, here.
Thanks for all that you do,
Healthcare-NOW! National Staff
