Health Care Heroes
OCTOBER 16, 2009
Yesterday was mobilization day for health care activists. In the clammy rain folks gathered and sat in at insurance corporate offices across the country. Here's a drawing of demonstrators at United Health at Penn Plaza, where I was yesterday, where 14 people were arrested. People on 34th Street were completely with us. It was inspiring, weather and all. This video of people at Wellpoint (Sen. Baucus' favorite insurance comapny) has some clips of strong testimonials. This group Mobilzation for Health Care For All tells it straight. I don't see Single Payer happening yet, but this point of view, uncovered by Main Stream Media is important to hear. And might get us something better than what garbage the Senate is preparing. From a photo by Jane Maisel.
