Attend Climate Rally And Help Campaign for Medicare for All

  • When: Sunday, September 21, 2014
  • Where: Oakland,CA
  • Posted: Sep 16th, 2014

When: Sunday, Sept. 21st  from 1–5 PM

Where: Oakland’s Lake Merritt Amphitheater

(12th St and Lake Merritt Dr — 4 blocks from Lake Merritt BART station)

What: Attend a large Climate Rally and help us to talk with people about single payer healthcare.   We will be asking people to write letters and sign postcards in support of HR 676, the national Medicare for All Act.

As Medicare for All activists, we need to advocate for solutions to solve the global warming crisis. We also need to talk about how extreme weather negatively impacts people’s health, and those most vulnerable often do not have health insurance.

Please let us know if you can help. We find it’s best to talk with folks before the rally begins. We will have the table set up by 1PM.

First it was Social Security, then Medicare and Medicaid, and then the public health care option under Obamacare. Now, in the wake of recent allegations that veterans hospitals put patients on secret wait lists, Republicans are calling for the privatization of the Veterans Health Administration, the nation’s largest public health care system which provides cost-effective and high quality care to 6.2 million veterans.

It is of course unacceptable if patients suffered as a result of any delays. But regardless of what went wrong at any VA facility, turning veterans over to private sector insurers and for-profit hospitals is not the solution.

With its salaried staff of nearly 280,000, the VA has long been a model for health care delivery. The VA’s 152 hospitals, 900 clinics, 300 mental health centers, and other facilities — many located in rural areas that the private sector ignores — care for more than 230,000 people a day. In a recent survey of veterans for the American Customer Satisfaction Index, patients rated the system’s services as equal to or better than private sector health care facilities.
