Virginia vs. HMOs

No More Health Insurance Companies Ever Again.
Single-Payer Healthcare Instead.
Come Find Out How We Can Make It Happen…

Healthcare in Crisis: A Public Forum on Monday, February 23rd

PERRIELLO: Congressman Tom Perriello told us on Tuesday that he was undecided about supporting single-payer healthcare. So we asked what we could do to persuade him, and he replied: “Keep doing what you’re doing, pressuring me, phone calls and Emails.” He also agreed to send a staff person to our forum on Monday. So, everybody needs to turn out, learn about the issue, share our experiences, and make our opinions known.

OBAMA: President Obama is rumored to be planning a major speech on healthcare for prime time on Tuesday ( http://tinyurl.com/dk4m89 ). Charlottesvillians will discuss what they want done on Monday — always ahead of the curve.

Bring Your Doctor to Democracy Day: Some of those best able to discuss the need for healthcare reform are doctors. Please stop by or phone your own doctors’ and dentists’ offices and invite everyone who works there to join us Monday night. It’s your turn to remind them of an appointment!

Here are the details:
