Rally for Healthcare Sanity

Have you heard? On October 30th, Jon Stewart is organizing a rally in Washington DC to “restore sanity,” while Stephen Colbert is organizing a counter demo to “keep fear alive.”

Sounds a little bit like Healthcare-NOW!’s campaign to implement a national universal healthcare system as the only sane answer to our healthcare crisis.

Yet, corporate interests pour millions into propaganda and lies about rationing and death panels to stop universal health care from coming to the US.

If you are going to DC, or one of the hundreds of local rallies to restore sanity around the country, don’t forget to talk about the sanest of healthcare systems – single-payer healthcare: a system that will cover everyone, use our healthcare dollar wisely, and save money for our country, our states, our cities, our schools, and our families.

In Washington, DC, single-payer advocates will be at the Rally to Restore Sanity this Saturday (12 noon) and will meet at 4th Street on the National Mall (Capitol side of the street). Join us and help us get Healthcare-NOW! postcards filled out. Please bring your single-payer signs!

Download some postcards (.pdf) to get signed by other sane people who don’t want to cut Social Security and Medicare, and instead want improved Medicare for All.

Or copy some of our sign ideas pictured here.

    I don’t care if it’s called Medicare, Obamacare or We Care. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness depends on being healthy enough to enjoy all three.

    No more “for profit” Wealthcare! We need universal HEALTH care now!

    SERIOUSLY PRO LIFE! As a sufferer of late stage Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, I know first hand about the insanity of our lack of health care system and the mean politics that go with it. Forced to exist with these nasty diseases for so many years, undiagnosed-my children were even born with it. The chance is about nil that it’ll ever show up on a blood test for them (second generation). We’re told these infections are from a bug bite. A BUG BITE, PEOPLE! We’ve lost everything because of this. When you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything. Thanks to Jon Stewart for this rally. I wish I could go. Thank God for the real people who DO CARE!

    Tell everyone you know to read The Healing of America by T.R. Reid…

    I am telling everyone I know who is confused about the Healthcare situation in the United States. This book makes it crystal clear what needs to happen.

    I had to stop paying $700. a month on my single payer BCBS health care as it was that or a foreclosure. I am a nurse and have seen first hand people denied health care, with possibility of no hope ever of getting well. I am ashamed of this country and its selfishness of sharing the money pot to help its own people to live a deserved healthy life as an American citizen. I have met so many people from other countries and their attitude of Americans and the health care is not negative towards our government. But amazed that the people are so lazy in standing up for their rights as Americans!
