Lobby, Organizing Materials for Protecting Medicare

Many single-payer activists and supporters have been thinking about, or already started, planning an event to protect Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security the week of December 10th (International Human Rights Day).

To help, we created a number of resources you can use for a lobby visit or event.

Download this letter (.doc) to sign and address to your Representative and Senators. You can deliver it by hand or by mail. You can find your representative’s office location here.

Download this petition (.pdf) and collect contacts for your group’s database and then deliver them to your Representative.

Download this flier (.pdf) asking people to call Congress. It’s half-page and easy to hand out.

Finally, download this article (.doc) and these polling results (.doc) on the threats to Medicare to include with your letter to Congress.

If you need signs for a rally, let us know and we can mail you some. Email francesca@healthcare-now.org or call us at 800-453-1305.

Here’s our original call for action.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your blog.

    It appears like some of the text on your posts are running off the
    screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this
    is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my web
    browser because I’ve had this happen before. Thank you
